I think the question comes down to what is the engine using to calculate load.

I am pretty sure that the boost, timing and other return values the JB4 sends to the DME will affect the load calc,...

The open source software that flashes via a BT cable does not work for n55. I believe flashing via Cobb does.

The stuck injector would make sense. It was very precise and periodic loss of a cylinder or two.

If you're good with a wrench, you could try to change the filter and fluid. Wouldn't cost much. It's a good idea if you have more than 60k anyway.

Old fluid can cause bad trans behavior.

I only know from experience that when you get stutter from build up, running a couple bottles clears things out.

Others on this who've heeded this suggestion have seen it work too.

That is one beast of a car.
