its an impossible question.....

the question i think you should be asking is how much power the engine can take at "x"rpm

18psi on one turbo could be 1200bhp whereas another turbo it could be 600bhp, you also state "block" so this figure would be the point where the cylinder wall fails and internal combustion becomes external combustion

any other failure would be crank/rod/piston etc, the block would be last to fail!
