auto shifts hard after turbo conversion

hi guys
just wondering i you could shed some light on my problem ive ,as soon as i installed a turbo that is only set to 3 psi and comes in about 2500rpm , my auto is shifting a lot harder between the gears at about 1/3 throttle and above "almost like a shift kit has been put in the tranny", the box was completly rebuilt 2 years ago and in that time has not missed a beat no matter what i did , if someone can please give me some info as what it might be in the auto before i get ripped off by some of the shonky auto-transmission dudes.

cheers (efturbo)

Re: auto shifts hard after turbo conversion

start with a service... might be just co-incidence ... if not maybe a solenoid issue.. Is the trans still earthed properly
