The problem is not that your SC engine cannot produce 350HP when turbocharged, the problem is you have 100K on the engine.
I would not tubocharge an engine with that many miles on the clock unless I knew the history. A PPI won't tell the entire story.

If you really want a project you can rebuild your 3.0L with lower C/R and then turbocharge it. The 915 is your limit on power. If you want more than 300 ft/lb or torque then add a 930 4spd or a G50 to your budget.

After all that you'll want to add suspension mods and big brakes. All these costs are the reason everyone is telling you to sell your SC and buy a 930. For $25K you can buy a decent 930. 'Course then you'll want to mod it as well, ha!
