66 malibu rearend

I currently have a 66 malibu 10 bolt, 4 link, 3.08 rearend (non-posi) with a turbo 350 trans a 350/350hp engine and 265/50 15 tires and would like to add posi but am not sure if the rearend will hold up. My intention was to add posi and increase the ratio to 3.55(about $800), go to a 12 bolt(about $1700), or try and find a stronger 10 bolt with this ratio & posi setup and can easily bolt up to my 4 link.I do not intend to drive this car hard but will get on it now and then.Any suggestions or experiences that will help me decide the best option would be appreciated.

that OE rear diff is very strong for street use when built correctly.

If you are not running drag race slicks on the car I would not worry
