I don't know about FTL, but an event horizon itself causes no effect (it's an important threshold, but doesn't have any physical effect other than being the point of no return). The tidal effects of a black hole can be very small if the hole is very massive (you read that right - a small black hole has large tidal effects, a large one has small tidal effects).
