Sounds like the Torque Converter is locking up bad torque converter clutch solenoid

Just how modified is this engine? If the cam has been changed to a longer duration high lift grind then the stock torque converter may not work due to the cam needing a higher idle speed. You will need a higher stall speed torque converter to compensate for a higher base idle. You can get with your speed shop guys and figure what converter will work the best for the engine mods. But if the cam had not been changed from factory then chances are very high that the torque converter has locked up especially if it dies in both forward and reverse.
