Question Which should I do?

In the near future, I'm contemplating going FI. I'm not sure if I want to go turbo, super, or nitrous. But my question is, should I get an 8.8 rear end with a 4.10? OR.....should I keep my 7.5, and have a 4.10 gear with a t-lok installed? I've heard both good and bad things about our rear ends holding up, and I'm not sure which way to go. Any input is appreciated.
Thnx

Probably almost as cheap to go with the Take-off 8.8 and strobger than the 7.....

Go with the factory set-up 8.8 take-off with the desired gears and the T-Loc.

Ok...so 8.8 is what I'll do. But just out of curiosity, how true is it that our stock 7.5's don't hold up well when introduced to FI and good amounts of torque?
