how long can you drive a car with a new larger torque converter untuned? specifically a fuddle 3400, is it still goin to drive but just just drive like **** till it's tuned or is it totally unsafe?

I think if you go WOT you will hit the limiter..
Other than that i think you will be fine.

You may have some shift timing issues as mentioned and there is the possibility of limp mode with PO757 but it should not do any harm.
