Overfill Damage

I put about 2 quarts in the converter, and installed my rebuilt C5 today. I started off with about 6 quarts in the tranny, then tried toshift into all gears without trying to drive anywhere. I could feel engagement and added one more quart.

This time It engaged and drove about 14 feet up the driveway. It felt like it wasn't grabbing enough, so I put in about 1/2 more quarts and it overflowed out the valve on top of the trans. Since then I vacuumed out enough fluid to get the right level on my dipstick. Did I do any damage to the trans by overfilling it?

It won't engage now.
