Transmission gone, vid inside. Ideas?

I was doing some logs today, and happened to be recording, i wasnt planning on blowing up my tranny

anyways my mods.
FBO, RBs, JB4 g5 iso, BMS FLASH, 100% meth cm 14, walboro. e85/93

@ 2:01 is was a 2nd gear pull/log it was okay you cant really tell how fast the car is going or get a feel for it but it pulled strong.

2:11 it felt like it slipped bad but no transmission codes, and it drove fine.

4:20 was a 3rd gear pull/log +FML

4:53 i figured my life is over and called a tow truck

any ideas or suggestions to what happened no transmission codes at all but i do get these in the anti lock breaks section and they won't go away

In D the car just revs and in P and N the car Barely moves..

This reminds me of HotRods videos of nitrous and the car literally couldn't support the torque from nitrous. The auto trans even missed 4th gear.

Time for a Level 10 upgrade. I wonder if its just the Trans Oil Pump that has failed. Was it slipping and shifting funny for a while or just have out all of a sudden.

Damn that sucks. According to those codes, I would think it's the TQ converter no?

yeah it kinda did but it felt like the transmission was confused as Fk when it hit 80mph it was revving high and and sloppy. it usually throws it into neutral when it does that then i just gotta restart. but it actually kept driving :/ so i went for another round.

Man Sammy I'm sorry this had to happen to you...Out of everybody running similar setup cars yours is the one that always messes up...You have done everything humanly possible to make that car as fast as it can be with all the right parts and made sure everything was in check. Its just these huge issues arise like your turbos blowing to you frying your transmission... Not just simple misfires but very costly repairs...I'm sorry bro and if there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

I think the reason the transmission is toast was maybe because of abs and it not being able to do tourqe converter readings.

Im really trying to figure out what the difference is between Level 10s "bullet proof" rebuild kit and just a regular overhaul kit... they look to be the EXACT same

Have you tried flashing back to stock on map 4 with the jb4 iso?

My tranny limped running cobb only once on rbs. Yours seems persistent though. Best of luck op.

+1 time to look to swap to a 6mt, this is my plan eventually when my AT takes a dump.

Here is a scrip from Roundel Tech editor Mike Miller that might make you consider.

At automatic transmission replacement time, we are confronted with the reality that the local transmission shop cannot rebuild BMW automatic transmissions, even those built by GM (BMW’s GM transmissions bear not resemblance to GM transmission in domestic cars). There are some domestic specialists who concentrate in BMW automatic transmission rebuilding, and you’ll see their ads in Roundel. However, I have no experience with any of the current domestic re-builders. My experience in the past is…well, I wound up buying a BMW factory rebuilt automatic transmission every time, and this is the course I recommend to readers – “back to the dealer.”

Some of you, having seen the light, may be interested in converting to a manual gearbox. This is always possible, but for most of us it won’t be less expensive than a replacement automatic transmission. This is because of all the other parts and additional labor required. And the newer the car the harder the job will be. It is certainly a doable swap, but there’s no cost savings even if you do the work yourself. The exception would be if you have access to a manual gearbox donor car for little or no expense.
