It will probably depend on what tuner you use as stages are somewhat subjective.

SBC Stage 2 Endurance... that's a good choice for a clutch. .205's for nozzles? When I see .205 nozzles , I am never sure what nozzles. I think a good upgrade pathway would be good name brand nozzles with proper calibration, and a good tune from one of the trusted tuners. Then when your turbo is ready for replacement ...a VNT 17. My 98 Beetle has PP764's set to Low Smoke, tuned, with a VNT 17...and I think its a very nice setup! These are fun cars! All the best Paul
