At what Horse/Tourque level does a 1970 and up c-4 bell get weak and break ? or does this even happen at all-

It usually only breaks when there is a bind or misalignment between the drive train and the chassis. Also could break when there is a bad[b/] vibration of the drive shaft.

A lot of fast cars have never broken a bell housing. I am running mid 10s with a stock bell.

Aftermarket SFI bellhousings are required only for protection against an exploding flex plate. You can also run a flex plate sheild with a stock bell housing and be legal.
