I would always choose a newer generation turbo where possible. GTD > GTC > GTB > GTA > GT. For excellent spool, GTC1549VZ (very cheap in the UK); else GTB1752V (found in the 174 HP R5 TDI.

IMO going to a GTx20V frame size sacrifices more low-rev response than I'd personally like but will become necessary past say 230 HP.

For the cam, I'm biased toward NPS's, else Dbilas 240/250, keep it mild if you're not doing any head porting. Can't speak for Newman and Piper but some like them and they are both in the UK. If you have more fabrication/customisation skills than money, you could adapt a petrol 2.0 Mk3 ABA (048 109 101D) or 050 109 101 A cam.

Edit: @mk1-83: If you're selling more than your private holdings, you need to register as a vendor.
