Default trying to find a beefer rear for my 87 camaro

i got a 87 camaro "Z" that ive been building a 406 with a tubo 350 swap, and ive been looking for a better rear, something that will handle 450-500hp without spending 2500-3000.00, i would like to know if there is an earlier car with a 12 bolt that is the same lenght, i know that i would have to fab up the torque arms to the top of the diff, but that shouldnt be too hard, would possibly use a 9" but don't know how much work would have to be done to get it to fit, i really dont want to have to chop up the rear end

If this is a street Your 10 bolt will hold up fine in my opinion.
