Two full turns, that's 720°. However, that may not give optimal results if they've been running and wearing at a very different setting. I recommend you make a note of the current setting when adjusting. Then if you have problems you can return to your original settings.
Btw, on worn tappets I prefer 1.5 turns in (540°).
