Probably meant to say grind. That would be transmission related I would think which includes torque converter.

Hopefully it has nothing to do with all the wires I found almost melted on your car. Could be the tranny but I'm not sure. Try flashing is back to stock and see if it still does it. Could just be the flasher causing issues

That's an easy test and thought.

Hopefully that's it.
