I have a 2022 Longhorn with a 5.7 etorque engine that I purchased 2 months ago. When I shut the auto start off, the acceleration hesitates for a split second from a dead stop. Its similar to when a carberator hesitated in the old days. When the auto start is engaged it doesnt do this. It feels like the engine gulps before it gets gas. Not a big issue at all - but something is wrong. Anyone else?

My 2020 eTorque was the same way until I got it tuned. Before I sold it I put the factory PCM back in but left the trans tune on it and it drive like a dream. No weird jerky shifting as it slowed down at stop signs and no hesitation from a stop or passing.

Can't really say that' relevant to your situation but sounds similar.
