My stock torque converter has 322k, so yes it can hold up.
I would check for low line pressure, or low forward/direct clutch pressure first. I can't remember if it is called the direct clutch or the forward clutch at the moment and I can't get to my E4OD/4R100 book right now, but it is the one that originally had the wave plate. You did have the wave plate removed and an extra friction added when the transmission was "beefed up" didn't you? I would bet on low line pressure and the pedal on the right has burned up those clutches.
