Examples? I had to add some if statements in a couple areas I didn’t want
to and a virtual method but beyond that I don’t see what would affect

Precisely these virtual methods are one point. They might not add much by
themselves, but if they're called for each Add or Remove operation they can
add quite a bit.
Why do you think that the TFP(Object)List classes don't have notification
support unlike T(Object)List? Even if it only checks whether a notification
handler is assigned it's enough for a noticeable difference in performance.
