Cmcv plates and cams

I've been running ford racing hot rod cams for a while now and everything was good up until recently. I had the normal surging below like 1500 rpm which is fine because I never drive at those rpm anyway. Recently i installed cmcv plates and loaded up a bama tune and the jerking and surging is way more pronounced and last until about 2300 rpm. I suspected tune issues (after i removed the manifold again to triple check gaskets and leaks). I went through data logging with bama and the response i got was that my issues are because of the cams. I had the cams for some time without this issue and it only became worse with the plates installed. Does this make sense that the increased low end airflow would decrease low end drivability? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm guessing my only legitimate option is to put the factory plates back on and sell the steeda plates.. 😩

2008 GT/CS , 17k original miles, bagged with airlift v2, cammed, and some bolt ons.

I also have a 2005 gt with mutha thumpr stage 2 cams and bunch of other Bolt on mods with sct tuner. Car had lots of bottom end power and torque. Just installed ford racing upper intake manifold and I lost lots of torque and bottom end power. But gained major top end power.!!!!. Like pulling hard up to 7000rpm. So it wasn't what I expected but still pulls harder at top end but had to sacrifice bottom end!!!🤔🤔
