just a suggestion, when you do decide to measure case deflection, do it on several cars that vary in whp, to get an idea of when/if it actually becomes benefitual.
I have a test fixture in mind. I could mount the trans to the fixture and find a way to bind the axle stubs and rear output shaft to the fixture so they cannot spin. I have a 4 ft. long torque wrench at work (yes 4 feet) that can be set to like 650 ft./lbs, so I can set torque and measure dimensional changes as I apply various levels of torque to the input shaft. One set of measurements with the reinforcement and one without. It's a BIG torque wrench though, I'm honestly a little worried that I will accidentally break my spare transmission with it
So... Next question: Is anybody willing to donate an already broken transmission?
