depends what you class as "alot of power" ...
for a small block street/strip combo the ol 10 and 12 bolt chevies seem to take a hammering ok.....
Although depending on the availability in your part of the globe Ive heard reports of a Humber Super Snipe diff being used in a early rail for years on end without breaking , aftermarket parts might be a problem though.......

9 inch is the answer.... 8.8s too... 10 bolts work... 12s are almost as good as the 9 inch, but they are hard to find... How much power are you makin?

8.8 and gm 8 1/5 (10 bolt) anen't gonna hold up over time to that mutch juice!
a local of my town is pushin 600 some hp through a 10 bolt and it is gettin it's little *** whooped. i did a ratio change on it. when i took the cover off there were 65 thousanths back lash and silver all over.
nothing wrong with a ford 9,popular, good parts availability (scrap yard and aftermarket)
and very stout.
dana makes great axles, a bit of a ppain to set up, but also very sturdy.
stay away from gm 10 1/5 , they allways seem to have eaton posi units that are way over built and are allways brokey!
hope that helps.
