Thumbs up Hard Shifting after work on car

I recently finished some work on my SDL and now the Tranny is shifting with hard shifts instead of the smooth changes previously.

Here's what I did, and yes I know some of these cannot be related to the Tranny:
- Replaced Vacuum Pump (Original flat face was working fine - I think)
- Fixed Exhaust Leak at front/rear manifold joint.
- Drained & Flushed Cooling System & replaced top & bottom hoses.
- Replaced Alternator Brushes/Regulator.
- Removed EGR Valve (previously disabled) and associated vacuum hoses.
- Cleaned out crossover pipe and installed new gaskets & seals.
- Replaced all filters (air, fuel & oil) and oil.

Anybody have any ideas??

1987 M-B 300SDL Ivory/Palomino 229,000 Miles (sold but never forgotten)

1999 Porsche Boxster Arena Red/Savanna Beige
1972 Porsche 911 Viper Green/Black
