Post Should I buy a T 5 Transmission out of an 87 Camaro

Is this a strong enough trans. to take the beating that a 396 or a 427 can dish out?
I want to put this into my 73 nova but am unsure of the transmission strengths/ weeknesses.

Ouch! You could sell it for $300 easy, $400 maybe or run it til it breaks and loose it all. It'll be fun if you're really easy on it, but thats hard to do.
