How much power can a turbo 350 take

I am building a twin turbo 496 sort of mild and have a turbo 350 trans that I want to use (for financial reasons) the engine cost is draining me. If I have it rebuilt with high performance bands and race sprang and new valve body will the tranny be able to hold up against 700-900hp if I go easy on it and have a low stall converter?

thanks
Brian

PS. here is a picture of my engine

The Turbo 350 can be built to withstand a lot of power..........but the cost of doing so will be vastly higher than a Turbo 400 purchase cost and rebuild.

Chevrolet did not put Turbo 350's behind any BBC from the factory. Even the lowly 325HP 396 got the Turbo 400. Earlier BBC's did have the PG.

the engine was a 454 turbo 350 combo in my 68 firebird before i decided to pull it and stroke and turbo it. I can have it rebuild for 200 plus parts so I figure it will be around 700-800 when I am done and a new quality turbo 400 will be over 1000 so i will save a couple hundred

any thoughts?

thanks
Brian
