Just throwing this out there, but with a 600WHP car, a TH400 with a manual valvebody would be pretty sweet. No idea on how much easier/harder it would be to adapt relative to a T-56. I think it would be the same. A 4L60E is essentialy similar to a TH350 IIRC. And it bolted up to the same LSXs that T-56s did. Or go baller and find a 4L80E which is IIRC the same footprint as a TH400/4L60E and have a truly basdass drag racing setup. Well setup Auto > Manual for launching when you get to that level. Plenty of aftermarket for them. Plenty of LSX guys going with 4L80Es.

He doesn't want auto because he is a boyracer.

I always enjoy watching vids of people in FI Vipers trying to run 9's with 1000WHP and T-56s and even with quite a bit of skill/setup/experience just slipping all over the track through the 1/8. I bet a Viper with ~900WHP and its weight/wheelbase is about as hard to drive as a Miata with 600WHP and its respective wheelbase and weight.

Plus, reverse pattern manual valve bodies are 100% badass. I always hear conflicting info on if they can be used on a track and downshifted etc. I have this nagging desire to run a 454 Nova with mini-moon wheels (think cop car), 10.5 slicks, a TH400 with a reverse pattern manual, and a really nice semi-matte gray paintjob. Or just own Blades car. That would work.

Hijack over. Sorry.
