C6 questions

I aquired a C6 that supposedly has a manual valve body in it. Other then that I know nothing about it. What is it going to take to make it stand up to the abuse of my 557. I am planning on around 800hp with nitrous. I would like to know what I will need to make it reliable. Also what kinds of converters will stand up to abuse like this without failing on me?

As far as converters are concerned, any good quality converter will work - 800 hp isn't that radical nowadays. Get a nitrous/transbrake model though. They'll have furnace brazed fins, anti-ballon plate and torrington thrust washers.
