transmission strength, auto and manual

So I'm building a 454 that will have good power and tq. Hoping for 450 hp and 500 tq. Will a TH400 (like from summit) hold up better than a borg warner super t10 with a 2.43 1st?

454 9:1 cr 60203 cam (dont have a r&p yet) Oh and for that cam I'd need a 2400 stall.

It is after all a pickup and even with a posi prob wont hook well... I really like stick shifts. I sorta see a auto as expendable almost, because the clutches are inside so you have to crack that baby apart and rebuild vs a simple clutch change. I can't afford a TKO or M22...
