I suspect that the age and associated wear plays a role as much as the relative weakness of the tranny. I'm doing fine with mine so far (over 400hp) but would not be surprised to see it fail suddenly which is why I have a short bell 930 waiting in the wings. I did reinforce mine with a billet side cover, one piece bearing retainer, LSD, and WEVO main case modification after fixing the loose pinion race. IIRC, your '84 should not be as prone to pinion race issues.
