Boost Defuel?

I have an 08 job 3 with an H&S mini maxx HD 300, 5" turbo back, S&B cai and egr delete. I was wondering what the ideal defuel would be for the boost? I have read numerous posts and everyone is saying something different - some say 38psi and i've seen some people running 45psi. I want to run the highest but safest setting as i dont want to blow the HG. I am currently running it at 38psi but it defuels within 2 seconds of getting on the pedal so I run out of power to quick. Any input is appreciated thx.

Alot of people run it at 38-40 psi defuel and just turn it off if they want to play. After playing they just turn it back on. As for a safe number, 38 would be a safe number.

I think mine is set at 45psi. I still defuel within seconds and even faster when cruising then going to WOT to pass.

That's good to know. Do you have another other upgrades than the big 3?

I'm to scared to run it up to 52psi. I had it previously set to 42psi and it puked on me. Brought it in to the dealer and they said they tested it 4 times and couldn't find any issues with it.
