    I'd go with a Southbend Stage 2 Daily, maybe stage 3.

    We do Tig welding at Calgary Autoworks.

    They set me up with a southbend stage 2 on my 16vT mk2, and a stage 3 on my 1.8T mk2, and both were great. the stage 3 was surprisingly drivable.

    I had a spec stage 3 on the 1.8T build before, and it felt a bit like an on/off switch.

    I have/had a Spec in my allroad and it is awful and now failed. Awaiting some time to put a Southbend in.

    going with Southbend stage 3, stage 2 seems it is boarder line on the power, stage 3 might be some overkill but at least it will hold
    Pulled out a Spec due to failure, pressure plate fingers failed
