86 Si tranny

This 86 2.0 Si that I have is such a great automobile. I just had the tranny rebuilt and it still has this weird shift pattern. It seems to go through 2nd and
3rd fast, and wants to go from 4th down to 3rd while at highway speeds. I haven't looked much into it yet, but is seems there is a regulator or something that controls the shift points that is still AFU. Is there something I haven't found yet or should I be pissed at the rebuild shop? It also wants to hold into
1st gear till like 4 grand when its not warmed up yet. Any thoughts would be
just groovy.

Just an update, tranny shop found that even after flushing the trans cooler in the radiator, that some metal had gotten back into the tranny and clogged some valves. so the choices were to install and after market trans cooler or buy another Si radiator. I couldn't see how an aftermarket cooler which would be smaller could help, or even where we would mount one. They ended up finding an aluminum 86 Si radiator and putting that in. I now have the old one that I cannot use but I kept it thinking that someone with a manual could make use of it, so If anyone around me needs one to keep their car on the road it's theirs for the taking, no charge, I don't want to ship it if I can help it. I am in Orlando Fl.
