The rules for crystalline armor are not clear regarding dex modifiers. The rules suggest that the ability mimics the spell mage armor, which has a base armor of 13 plus dex modifier. Higher level crystalline armor is 'improved become more experienced.' The higher armor does not have a minimum strength, weighs half, and does not impose stealth disadvantage. Is there a limitation on the maximum dex bonus you get?

If this is improved mage armor, then one can argue no max on dex bonus. If it is something else, than there may be a limit, but no disadvantage on stealth suggest it should be better than the dex bonus of the real suit.

Rules are pretty clear -

lv2 the Metacreation-Psion gains Mage Armor
lv5 this becomes Chain Mail armor
lv9 it becomes Splint Mail
lv11 it becomes Plate Mail

There is no improvement to max dex bonus. The armors this ability grants works just like the normal versions of the armor it mimics (including it's max dex bonus). The boon of this ability being the removal of Str requirements, removal of Stealth disads, and weighs have as much as the normal variant (which doesn't cost the character any coin to buy nor resources to use).
