I know there must be someone here who can answer this question. A turbo 350, it takes almost 15 quarts to fill it if it's bone dry, right? I put this tranny in the car bone dry, tranny was dry, tq converter was dry, cooler lines were dry, etc... and i put in 5 quarts, the car moved about 20 feet and stopped moving, then i added 8 more and the car will go about 30 miles an hour, but it won't go up hill and it wont shift out of 1st. Is it a valve body, a torque converter? the dipstick says im over full now. Please help.

Nah, just let the car idle in neutral for about 20 minutes, then take it for a drive.

The vacuum line is hooked up, i have driven the car, i took it for a ten minute ride around town, with open headers that was interesting. I believe that the tranny will put fluid in the converter all on it's own, by letting it idle and certainly by driving it. Im thinking maybe a bad valve body.
