I have heard of drag racers using them behind 500 hp big blocks. Some are stronger than others,shop around.

i would go with a th350 and a little less gear if your main goal is to drive on the street alot.if you were goin to drag it put in a set of 4.10s and run a taller tire for the street and shorter ones for the track

I dont think the 700 will stand that kind of power.
