lets play guess what broke

I brake stand it for a few seconds and get tires smoking, it bounced and let go. Doubt it was out of first, could have been, and tq converter not locked.
What would brake if you could stop the rear wheel at the begining of a brake stand burn out? Tq converter?

Heres the deal. I can almost red line rpms in any gear, foward reverse, and it crawls with no power. No codes. Truck was running standard DP race tune I think 100hp?

I'm dumb not to have sucked it up and purchase a BTS last two times I destroyed a tran. If its not just the tq converter I will pull the trigger and brake in my bts the first day with burnouts until my tires melt and catch fire.

After all the shady moves the last "performance trans dealer" did, I would not be surprised if the tq converter was stock guts. For a kick in the nuts,they shut down and never returned my core fee. Pray for the tq converter, cause I have a performance built one getting dusty for such an occasion.

most likely the converter is toast and losing all your torque multiplication

There is no code for line pressure. The PCM has no idea what line pressure is inside the trans. All it knows is what line pressure it told the trans to have. It can't tell if it did it or not.

The only warning I had on my trans going out was a little slip between 2nd and 3rdgears. One day the trans just decided it had enough and would not move the truck at all. I'd go for a full rebuild and upgrade some parts while I was at it, then enjoy the truck.
