I have had no issues with my 10 bolt 8.5" behind my 454. The 12 bolt ring gear is only 8.875" so its really not that much bigger than the 8.5" 10 bolt. I have seen many many guys running the 8.5" with no problems. Your rear end is only as good as the parts you put in it. I guess that goes with pretty much anything in hot-rodding tho.
