HELP, my JK W/Hemi conversion is having issues with tranny shifting

I know just enough to be dangerous so I bought a jeep with the hemi conversion already done, I'm driving across country from Salt Lake City back to New York. I am having trouble with the transmission. Yesterday I went to pass somebody and when I mashed the throttle the transmission went into neutral just revved, when I backed off the gas to half throttle it worked normal. today after going on some easy trails in Moab, it felt like it was taking off in 2nd gear. if I pulled the shifter down it would take off normal then. also while four wheeling and pulling the shifter all the way down I couldn't get it to stay in low gear going down hills. error codes P0706, P8958, P0850, P2704.

The guys at TrailJeeps in Golden got me in and diagnosed that I need a valve body in the transmission. Those guys are awesome and I really appreciate them taking the time to look at my jeep on such short notice.. now I'm just going to limp it home back to New York and get it repaired there. I can tell you right now that the guy I bought this from is not a true Jeep guy because I don't think a true jeep guy would have sold this to me knowing that there's something wrong with the transmission
