Engine sputters and cuts out

I have a 16.5, I noticed a while back that lets say your in third gear you tap throttle hard and release fast, and do it right away again, the engine sputters real bad until you let off and give it a second to "catch up".
Now that I have a SC on it, its even more noticeable. There are no codes showing and it runs great if you just wait a second to shift and punch it in next gear. Last night I shut traction control off and problem went away, turned it back on and it does it some more. Thoughts why Traction Control would affect engine this way? I have spun wheels hard in 1st, 2nd and third and usually just felt engine surge as TC tried to take over. The cutout and sputtering does not feel right and Im not spinning wheels, just pulling along next to someone and popping throttle a few times to challenge them, embarresing when It sputters on 2nd or 3rd time.
Thanks in advance, Joe
