belt slipping

I've got an automatic with a shift kit and also running a tune from sct. Problem is when it shifts in moderate acceleration the belt squeaks. It did this before with just the kit. Changed the belt but it still does it. Anyone have this problem or know how to correct it?

Thanks
Erik

Did you replace your belt tensioner when you did the belt?

Tit's always a good idea to replace it with the serpentine. It's possible that when you shift gears it causes just enough strain to briefly cause it to slip

Yea its just a chirp. I would guess just that little chirp tho causes a little bit of power loss at that moment.
