Default Anyone went from stage 3 back to stage 2?

I've been at stage 3 now for about 1100 miles and although the car runs well, I think living in NYC, I may be better off with a stage 2 setup because low and midrange drivability might be better for the roads here. I am also thinking that it might give me slightly better long term engine longevity.
The car currently has a Cobb catted dp, prodrive axleback, sti up, vf34, sti intercooler, walbro fp. Dyno numbers on a mustang dyno (266whp, 233lb/ft) @ 17.5 psi.
I was wondering if anyone went back to stage 2 and what their thoughts were. I never had stage 2, went from 1 to 3.

I just made a post in the general section about going from where I'm at to a stage 2. I would also like to get a faster spooling turbo because of the area I live in and at the same time I'm making over 300 and don't want to go farther in spending money on things that are gonna break.

1. Wrong forum.
2. Stage 2....I could list 897 definitions for Stage 2 and still not know where to move this. Stage 2 is MARKETING....we need BRAND NAMES.
