You likely got a higher stall speed converter,and since the 5.4L's have a very tight converter from the factory-what you're likely feeling is the open converter during shifts and the looseness of that converter in normal driving.
Got an ebay link so I can see what you got there?

The 4R100 in the SD has a pretty loose converter from the factory compared to the ones in the 5.4L F150 4R70W. We have a 2000 F250 5.4L here at work and the converter stalls about 2000-2200 where as my 01 F150 5.4L stalls about 1600.
