For your defuel parameters it really depends on how you want to treat the truck. If you want to keep it safe and conservative set the boost at like 40 and egt at 1100-1200 and you can either leave the coolant at 220 or move it lower if you would like. I havent really adjusted any of the initial defuel settings yet. Just observing how it normally runs and going from there.

You will not be disappointed. I just put the mini max and full 4 inch exhaust on my wifes truck... she absolutely loves her truck now with just the wild tune.

Tonight I am putting her intake on, so for her drive tomorrow she will get the hot damn tune. She has reported that the mileage has gone up a little as well.
