The Buick turbos are way too small for a 350. Pressure one one application has little to do with putting the turbo on another. While design pressure ratio is important, the amount of air the turbo can move is much more important.

Yes The 3.8 v6 boost would be safe at 6Psi's. on boarderline with running 9psi but can do that tho..lower miles would handle 9psi.
