Despite the rebuild, if the fluid level is low, you will be sluggish on initial acceleration until enough fluid is spun up to produce a "solid" connection between both halves of the torque converter. When that occurs, there will be a sudden surge of power.

That happened to me once, and a couple quarts of tranny fluid solved the problem.
