Turbo 350 pukes under load

I did some searching and couldn't quite find a thread similar to my issue. I'd really like to post on this forum not asking for help for once lol. But anyway I have a 350 with a turbo 350 trans and I recently did an engine swap and it now pukes fluid out the dipstick tube when its under a load, I noticed that it quits smoking after the truck gets up to temp so I'm wondering if it stops leaking when its warm maybe? I also could put it in gear then his it around 2000 rpms and then put it in park and roll under the rig and fluid is running down the bell housing my I never witnessed it obviously and had my brother run the truck while I watched and couldn't get it to do it again but my tube is covered in fluid as is the back of my intake and passenger head, I'm afraid to drive it under these circumstances seeing as I put a pint on the floor in thirty minutes of messing with it

sounds like your vent maybe stopped up on the topside of your transmission. Had problems like this once, i blew air down my dipstick tube with my air compressor to unstop the vent..

So I've also read a few things about installing the cooler lines backwards that could cause this but for every place I find that says that I find another that says it doesn't matter. Can anyone clarify this?

Backwards wouldn't cause that. If the Cooler is stopped/plugged up it could.

Any other ideas on what would? I'm going to blow some air down the filler and see if it clears the vents and then I'm going to blow air through the cooler to see if its clogged

You can compare the flow rate from the Feed Line to Cooler vs the Return Line back to Trans to check for blockage.
Bottom line on Rad = Feed from Trans.
Top Line on Rad = Return to Trans.

Top Trans fitting = Feed/Out to Cooler.
Bottom Trans fitting = Return from Cooler.

Fluid level too high.
Vent tube plugged. Dirt Dabbers love those tubes.

To clean the Cooler, back flush with 'Brake Clean' & compressed air.

Thanx for the help I'm just hoping its not something more serious, I just put a new engine and exhaust in the rig and i'd really like to not have to replace the tranny lol. I've been told by a couple ppl and on here to give a shot of air down the filler to clear the vents and I'll just flush the cooler too for good measure
