2-3 and 4-5 Flare

2006 Cadillac XLR-V LSA SWAPPED

I've noticed that under part throttle i get a very noticeable flare on the 2-3 shift. Not much of a flare on the 4-5 under normal acceleration. Under WOT, the 2-3 flare is still noticeable and on occasion will hit the revlimiter. 4-5 WOT definitely flares. I also notice when cruising at freeway speeds in 6th gear, I TUTD into 5th and it downshifts what feels like 4th gear but eventually gets back into 5th. Seems to me the 3-5-R drum is not being applied quick enough. Possibly damaged drum, clutches or tune? Transmission is a Circle D Transmission built back in 2011 with around 3000 miles. Old build so it may or may not have the updated drum.

This all started happening after a reflash. Possibly a coincidence, not 100% sure on that.

Before tearing into the transmission, would you mind skimming over the tune to see if there's anything I can try before rebuilding this 6L80E.

Thank You!
