You seem to be experiencing something different. Sorry I cannot be of further help...
I guess what you call harsh is all relevant, as i'm costing if the the radio is off in a quiet surrounding, especially cold morning, cold drivetrain, yes I can feel the downshifts. However if it's sifting harsh after heat soak, something is wrong, very likely the valve body of your new transmission could be calibrated a little off. You should test drive a brand new one see how that feels.
