Yes, it is noticeable, especially with the L99 AFM. With the 3200 stall, it needs to rev 2000-3000 to get moving, and solidly moving at 3200. The AFM tries to engage at low speeds 1500-2200, but the engine wants to rev higher, so there's confusion.

Basically, I'm going to disable AFM in gears 1, 2, 3. That or I may be able to tweak the shifting properties.

But remember, AFM is not on manuals (yet) because it relies on the Torque Converter to smooth the transition. With the higher stall, the transition is not as smooth as it could be.
