I know it's not the same but I know of a 318i running 350ish+ though the stock '84 5sp OD(it was rebuilt though). Same era so I'd guess it should hold that, again I've never seen that much power through one but they should be similar.

But aren't most of the turbo E30 guys running 260s? That's what came stock behind the M20 in the E30. They can definately take 400+ HP. Not sure about the 245. I've seen a 240 in a turbo 318i hold up well enough at 250 rwhp, but I'm not sure if that was because the tranny was robust or something else broke first (small case diff, clutch, many guibos, etc).

You'll only break transmissions/differentials/guibos/etc if you drive like a jackass.

Going from zero to something as fast as possible often, sliding on a dry surface, those things.

Track use and such won't cause you any problems, let alone street driving and doing the occasional highway pull.
