still no Boost

The dealer said that the DPF was clogged and thats caused the loss of power and no turbo boost, I replaced the DPF delete pipe, SCT livewire and airrade intake. After all was said and done I turn the truck on a still no boost on the boost gauge. What else could be the problem? I've been searching on the forums and could it possibly be the EGR stuck closed? Is there anyway to check it? My truck is out of warranty so I would like to try to figure it out before I spend big $$ at the dealer.

It could be your guage, if you take off and step down on it, it shouldn't smoke much, if you don't have any boost, it'll smoke like crazy.

Thought about that but the truck has absolutly no power, but it's not throwing out any smoke.
