Post Ford 8" Rear

I have a 66 mustang with a 302 that i plan on building to make a little over 400hp. Its street driven but Im planning on taking it to the strip once in a while. I still have the stock 8 inch rear with 3.00:1 gears. Does anybody know if my 8 incher is strong enough to put up with it. If not what should I do? I dont have $2000 to buy a currie 9 inch or anything. Keep in mind the 66 mustangs only weigh 2800lbs. How stong is an 8 inch rear anyway? Thanks for any help.
