I knew plenty of flat fender guys way back when that ran the Buick V-6`s. Knew of 2 that were pushing 300 hp. The only things I ever saw them break were axles, the D-18`s held up very well.

Re: dana 18

The Dana 18 will hold up just fine, i have a 4.1L buick V6 in my CJ aand i run an 18. Very good. Your 18 will have the small intermediate shaft, but it should last just fine. If you wanted to beef it later on, you can get a large intermediate shaft dana 18 and slap it in.
