High quality upgrade, but..

I've bought the Microswiss CR-10 upgrade for my CR-10S. Installation was easy, beforehand I found me some nice cooling duct designs and printed those first on the old setup. The steppermotor feels a bit weak at times. The "high speed" i'm not so sure of it, it struggles to go beyond 40-50 mm/s. One of the worst downsides is the retraction, the 1-1.5mm retraction at a very low speed (35mm/s) is not great. This makes the setup a very "oozy" setup, even with simple PETG filaments. The temperature sensor seems to be fairly inaccurate (maybe the reason for oozing).
Although it all feels very high quality, it's not the best setup i've seen. Can't really recommend this, as there are better options at this pricepoint.

No Longer Centered

After install my Ender 3 no longer prints in the center of the bed. I had to move my glass over to the left like 5mm so the waste line stopped printing off the bed. It also prints like 15mm forward from center, so I have lost build area. I have been researching how to recenter my printer but I'm coming up empty. If somebody can help me that would be greatly appreciated.
