This was the most informative page I could find, which is surprising considering how popular the swap is:

About 300lbs.ft seems to be its limit from what I can see.

I've just read some of your other topics, forget the W58 or even the R154 box, the only Supra box that will laugh off your 650lbs target is the V160/V161 but even second hand they are bloody expensive as they are in very high demand from automatic Supra owners and kit car/Hi-Po modifiers, engine swappers etc. New they are BIG money.

This Supra is running 850bhp & 680lbs.ft, 1500kg on R888 tyres, stock box, TRD rear diff:
