There is no simple, linear relation. Small changes in the program can have
major effects on the optimisation.

Optimisation are usually orderred so that one phase sets up conditions
that subsequent phases can assume are true rather repeating
work. Otherwise nonlinearities getting the best orderring and
interleaving of phases is artwork or guesswork.
