tremec or richmond

Hello, I have decided to replace my th350 trans. to 5 spd. but am undecided as to go with a tremec tr-3550 or richmond street 5.
The car is a 67 camaro and engine will hopefully have around 370-400 hp and around 400 ft.lbs torque. any help or any advise would be thankful.

My .02

I like the Richmond concept of stiff gears in the tranny, letting you run high gears in the rear to give you a great final drive in 5th ( or 6th) while keeping a strong launch.
I'd do the Richmond.
