Everything seems about right. Boost might be a couple PSI on the low side but close. Around 16 PSI is normal.

A stock truck should put out 15-17 lbs of Boost, check your intake boots.
Trans temps should be 70-90 above ambient, anything sustained over 200 means you need more cooling.
EGT's are fine below 1250, short bursts to 1400+ degrees is fine but nothing sustained over 1250.
To be honest this info is posted several times a week, the search feature can be your friend!!
