Default clutch, before or after?

I know the general advice is to install the new clutch before the turbo install, but I'm just wondering how driveable the car will be without the new clutch. I have a modified JC Sports kit, running 4-5psi. My stock clutch has 50k miles on it. Will I be OK doing the break in of the kit (no hard driving) for a week or two? What's the worst that would happen from using the stock clutch? I imagine it will just put a lot of wear on it, and it will slip quite a bit, but it should still be driveable, correct?

It depends on how bad your current clutch is now. If it doesn't slip now you be alright. It might start to slip once you get high into the revs or if you try and launch it hard. I don't think you will hurt anything if you just don't try and rape the car until you do the clutch.
