69 351 block with a turbo?

I have a 69 351 windsor block that is .040 over, What kind of rwhp can these blocks handle with a turbo, I know the 5.0 are good till around 450rwhp, how much better are the 69 351's

The 351 blocks will handle 650+rwhp.

Would be better if you were only .030 over though.

Will the thinner cylinder walls be a problem at around 600rwhp?
