Default Just A General Transmission Question.. Before I Panic

First time posting long term listener. Question when I'm cruising. It's in 5th gear, when I floor it, it goes to 3 then 2. Shouldn't it go from 5 to 2? I've never noticed that. Never have I paid any attention to shifting patterns. Till it hit 100k miles. I recently installed a Cai. I doubt that has anything to do with shifting...

What I mean is that it feels like it goes into another gear then finally the passing gear. Instead of instantly going from 5th to 2nd.

Yea. For example, I'm on main street here (55 mph). I put it on tiptronic it reads "5". Put it back in "D" then floor it. I switch back to tiptronic (all while floored) and it reads "2". Car shifts awesome itself during normal use, but i haven't noticed the shifting patterns on the car since i got it. I just feel like its taking an extra step in shifting to another gear then finally 2nd. I dunno if this is normal or since all this talk about those transmissions. Just before i panic.

So basically your worried that it dosent drop to the lowest gear possible when u floor it?? Ie if ur in 5th it will drop to 4th Then 3rd by what you are describing instead of going from 5th straight to 3rd?? It just the way an auto is. Probably the design instead of hopping around it cycles through gears. Same as going from 1st to 2nd to 3rd it wont go 1st to 3rd it cycles through in order If you want to have that good passing power use tiptronic
