Exactly like someone I hear my engine struggle so I floor it for it to manually switch gears and pick up again. I really want that problem fixed

Always go to manual when you punch it. As far as sluggish up to thirty i think it has to do with the torque management in the tcm. If you watch my vids where i show the gauges you can see the tach slowly rise to 2800 and then rockets to 6k from 3k. I think the way the w5a580 is holding it back to protect the trans. Its cutting power till your at a safe speed for it to give you 100%
