stage 2 or 3 are very streetable. to me things that start diminishing "streetability" would be harshness of suspension, clutch, and most importantly the turbo. and stage 2-3 doesnt touch the turbo and really i would say the car would be even more streetable with the stage 2 or 3 tune than stock since its the stock turbo with better flowing exhaust therefore quicker spool up times. once you start upgrading the turbo is when factoring in streetability as bigger turbo = more lag

my concern was reliablty i just want to be breaking shit every other day. but it sounds like that wont be an issue. ive had my eyes on stage 3 and hope to pic it up in the future, but we'll see how that goes. i got to do the clutch in it first

just be aware that right when you go to stage 3 or whatever you go to, expect a few things to possibly go bad. its only normal for any car. when you up the performance on the car, all the weak parts that went under the radar before will now show their heads. but really reliability wise besides the weak parts (which might be none) reliability wouldnt be much different than stock unless your hard on the car.
