Reverse not working well after torque converter change

I have a 2000 F250 7.3L. I changed out my stock torque converter to the Stallion from Precision Industries. The truck is performing very well... in forward gears. When I pop it into reverse, the switch is very delayed and if there is any incline what so ever, it will not be able to do it. It feels like it's in neutral. We had a tough time putting the transmission back in (had to take it back apart and replace some parts inside that got bent in the putting back together process) so I'm not sure if we did something to it or just didn't hook something up correctly. Transmission fluid levels are good, possibly a little overfilled so I will check that and drain a bit if so. Any ideas to what could be wrong with reverse?

I bought a bunch a stuff from you a while back. Bag filters to be exact. Nice to see you on here.

My guess it have it scanned for codes. Sounds like something didn't get put back together quite right. It is normal for reverse not to engage right away, but not being able to back up a small hill is definitely not good.
