i would not set it above 33-34psi.

H&S tech explained to me that anything over that is a grey area with the stock turbo...

Right from the horses mouth:

H&S Performance :: Topic: Defuel Levels (1/2)

After a while you will find that you will adapt to a 32psi defuel and start to anticipate/control hitting the limit with your right foot.

A tech on H&S's forums made it very clear to set cold coolant at 160 and said it is often overlooked but very important.

Check on their website under mini maxx updates. It goes into great detail.
Basically it is just a program you download that automatically updates it.
Not sure about Macs.
