Personally, after having stage twos in my truck, I would go with 238/100s and dial them back. But, yes, you can dial back the stage 2s also,

Hybrids will be much easier to run detuned.

My 2's in one of my mild street tunes will barely smoke, runs very cool, and peaks around 30psi. And that is with some bad exhaust leaks that are causing big turbo lag.

But if i were buying sticks i'd go to hybrids if you can afford it. I basically got a set of 2's for half price so i couldn't pass em up. But i think hybrids would run way better on on my truck.
