problems after headstud and egr delete

I just got my truck back from the shop and I am getting the following codes P179A Controller Area Network (CAN) Engine Control Module (ECM)/Turbocharger Boost Control A Actuator Circuit Malfunction
P2263 Turbo/Super Charger Boost System Performance and a system readiness code also. It has alot of boost lag and is putting out way more black smoke then usual even at cruising speed I can see a bit coming out. I am running spartan tuner and I am on the 250 egr delete tune. What do you think is wrong?

im in the exact same boat, got truck back yesterday from having studs and egr delete done. truck runs horrid. I found out that my problem is the mechanic took the pipe off that contains the exhaust back pressure sensor and blocked it off up top instead of blocking under the sensor. im trying to put the pipe and sensor back in now, cant get it back in there though.... help?
But try checking if they did the same to yours.

make sure your VGT actuator is plugged in on top of the high pressure turbo

I think thats the connector the shop forgot on mine they wouldnt even take a second look at it they said it was because the tuner wasnt working properly and that was it. I even tried telling them that I had 4 connectors disconnected but could only find 2 on the egr and 1 on the cooler. It was hard to see where the plug went so it took my a while to find it.
