a 350-400 hp 351 with a top loader gearbox, would the borg warner lsd handle this?

Depends on how you drive it...

If you are going to do the odd burnout, and give it a hard time, a 9inch would be a better option.

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!

Re: 351 top loader- borg warner lsd?

I run a simular set up in my XD ute. 300rwhp. Toploader, 2.77:1 borgy lsd. Just make sure any drive line slack is taken up before you put the power down (no rollbacks) and like EBXR said no burnouts and it should last. It has only ever broken 1 axle. No probs with centre so far. Utes also have the advantage of been a bit lighter in the back, although this is a big disadvantage when trying to get power down.
