Default 4.10 gears tuning high revs

Hey all, I originally posted an issue in tech because I thought it was a mechanical issue. Now I believe it's actually an issue with the tune I got from BAMA/American Muscle.

2001 mustang gt auto

I just got a full rearend rebuild with 4.10s put in. When driving normally the car does not have any power from the start and I have to give it 3k revs for it to gain acceleration. It actually hangs in first gear and will not shift until 3k. I read that I can adjust the shift points but where is that possible? Is there a reason my acceleration is so bogged down? In comparison, my 2000 V6 accelerates faster from a start. Is there anything I can do in the tunes myself to fix this?

UPDATE: I put on a good 80 miles test driving the new 4.10's today with the tune. I haven't changed anything because I would to hear back from BAMA first and try the new tune they're sending me. But something strange happened somewhat consistently:

I would be going 50, then slowing down for a full right turn, my speedo reads that I dropped down to 10 mph as I turn. As I'm completing the turn I press the gas to accelerate but it feels like it's stuck in gear. Like my revs are up at 2k but I'm still travelling about 12 mph now, then there's a hard lurch and it accelerates a little. The best way I can describe how it feels is if you're starting from a stop in second gear and trying to accelerate.

Is this something I can fix myself or has to be a whole different tune from BAMA?
Both me and the BAMA rep thought it was strange that we are having this problem with a bone stock 01 GT with only a 4.10 gear swap.

yeah I thought having a handheld tuner would be handy because I could adjust it myself, but it was kind of misleading because now I see that I can only slightly adjust around the parameters of the original tune. I don't think it will let me adjust the tunes fully unless SCT allows some sort of software that lets me do this.

Canned tunes suck. Get it dyno tuned. My 03 GT is tuned from AM and it is running rich as hell. I am getting it dyno tuned like my MACH 1
