Transmission shift issue ?

Recently picked up an 02 is300 auto trans . 92k . Coming from a gm the throttle response is strange which I did read about prior . Im curious if this is normal I notice it shifts very early 1-2 especially off stop lights . I see theres a tsb for a harsh 2-3 shift but its not harsh shifting . Things checked already . Trans fluid is fullw/type IV. fluid . No dtc's . Tried the ecu reset via pulling the fuse for 90min. Helped but didnt change it much . Guessing its how these cars are hopefully you guys can chime in . Note 2-3 shift happens very quickly as well unless I really romp it from a stop.

Yea, the shift from first to second is very quick in the automatics.

Btw, you only have to disconnect it for 5 minutes. Any longer does nothing different.
