No, not in OEM. 3.73 will make the Camaro leap right out with your HP and low first gear. Any abuse when you go over 400 HP will definitely shorten the life of the 700. If it has been beefed up, it will live longer, but you will need to pick and choose when you want to punish it. The big spread between 2nd and third can cause some slipping when you are holding your foot in it and is the weak area that could fail early. Again, a beefed up tranny will help in this area.
