Yes, the rear end will hold up to it. My own engine swap ideas came from my dad, who put a Mustang 289 into a 108 when I was in high school. He souped the thing up to an estimated 250 hp. Years later (about 23 years later), after hitting the gas hard, towing things and such, for decades, the rear end hasn't given out.
