2004 tranny build

So after a very uneventfull night in a snowstorm i piled 1st into 2nd in my truck.. overheated and cooked. so i removed the transmission and took it to a local builder. Its getting built up. bigger clutches, shift kit and a bigger torque converter. im wondering if anyone else has built there transmission or know of anyone having one done. OR issues from being built. its a 4r70w.
