Perhaps because Stage 1 is understood to be no intercooler, while Stage 2 is widely understood to have one. (Due to prior usage.)

And Stage 2 is shorter to write than higher performance option...

Have you considered one of the supercharger options instead? Turbos usually, (depending on the exact system design), work to give more power at the top end, but a JK, 3.8 or 3.6, benefits more from low to mid range torque. This is, also usually, better provided by a supercharger. Particularly Roots or screw type blowers.

And, unfortunately, many are designed with LHD in mind & don't fit RHD properly.

Step one in my book, is work out what I want it to do, then look for what fits the desired end.

Turbos are good at developing power higher in the rev range, mid to high, mostly. They can be made for bottom end, but tend to 'run out of puff' at the top. That's why high end vehicles use twin turbo. One is designed to spin up fast & boost bottom end, and the other spins up with higher gas flow & boosts the top. The centrifugal superchargers work best at higher revs as well, due to the impeller design.

Never really thought turbo would be the best choice offroad, you don't need a whole heap of lag before it becomes a little bit of a management issue. Used to run a pretty responsive turbo on the coupe and it was pretty fine but fiddly in sub optimal traction conditions.

You get to know it of course and the sounds awesome, I like the whoosh over the whine, merely aesthetics but cruising around the city nothing makes a practical difference anyway. Offroad though I'd be looking for response over power, but end of the day I havn't tested this system so I don't know what it's like in practice.
