Post 10 bolt not strong enough

I have a 10 bold in my 82 camaro, the motor has 450 horse and im planning on putting a 250 shot on it. im certain that the 10 bolt wont be able to take that much abuse, so my question is which rear is going to be the strongest for the cheapest. i know im going to fabricate the brackets, so i looking for the cheapest strongest build. has anyone done this? what did they use for a rear, and about how much di it cost?

9 inch used, you can find tons of em at wreckers, match up the right size axels and weld the mounts on, make a bracket for the tourque arm.

I also reccomend you get another housing liek yours to make a template and cut the mounts off. But yeah there are TONS of 9 inches out there.

Alot of guys talk about getting 12 bolts but I haven't heard of too many being there but anytime I go to the wreckers every second ford truck and rear wheel drive boat has one.
