Can STAR Help a non-AMG W211 Shift Faster?

Looking to speed up the shifting done by the 722.6 in my W211.

I have seen TCU tunes which would probably be optimal, but it is a bit tough to compare these with each other as there is a lot of qualitative comparison there.

Does STAR have the ability to speed up shifts at all, maybe even to just the factory AMG speeds?

the amg 722.6 has different programming and different solenoids for faster shifts.

Those transmissions have adaptive program, so they change it according to your driving style.
You drive like grandma, it will hold the gears longer. You can reset the transmission to factory setting, but it will adopt to your style few miles later.

That's what engine speed it shifts at. I want the shift events to happen faster.

Look up "blue top solenoids" for the 722.6. It will shift fast but also harsher in some situations.
