Any Faceplated TKO 500 users?

I looking to get a faceplated TKO and I like the 500 for the better 1st gear which i really could use. Im not sure if its strong enough tho... I have a 3000# car with me, with 480 RWHP and 390 RWTQ. I dont know if Tremecs TKO HP/TQ ratings are crank or wheel. Its a street car with a few a handful of nights drag racing each year.

Ive got 4 calls into Liberty over the last 3 days to ask them but they wont return my call so i ask here.

Any input is appreciated.

I've been running a faceplated tko500 for about 6 years. Had no problems with about 500hp, 3150 race weight launching at 6k with a mcleod soft lock clutch. With that said I added about 70hp to the motor this past winter and on my 5th pass of the year destroyed 3rd gear. Keep in mind tho that it had somewhere in the neighborhood of 600 passes on it.
