That question is a little hard to answer. To answer it, though, you could build a 632, that would fit. Also, a built turbo 400 from transmission specialties would hold up to the power. That motor/tranny combo would probably cost around $20,000 though.

cheapest easiest swap would be a caddy 500 and the caddys tranny. the early 70's cars (rear wheel drive) would be the ones to go for they had around 500 ft lbs. of torque. not bad figures.
