Most estimates range about the 500 fwhp, but it comes down to application, and it is actually the torque you are worried about. 500hp @5000rpm will hurt more than 500hp @7500rpm. Some will be said to take more, some will break with less.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

EB's didn't use toploaders, so i presume you are considering a transplant.

I ran considerably more the 500hp though mine on the track for 5 or 6 years and didnt have an ounce of trouble. I did however go through a plile of race prepped nodular 31 spline 9 inch diffs.

The odd thing was, the toploader was the only standard part on the car.

i know of a toploader with sequential shifter, 1tonne pressure plate, and with standard (but stepped) flywheel, that is pruducing almost 600rwhp (about 700fly wheel hp) and around 1600nm of torque. he has it for sale for about $1800 i think, to suit an EA

Great! Think of the weight saving in a car that needs no engine!
