Have you checked the intercooler boots for boost leaks?

Start with the simple stuff first. Check your air, fuel and oil filters. Not familiar with the CTS but if you could check ICP and boost it would help.

18psi is about right for a stock truck, if you are running a tune then you have a boost leak somewhere.

Fuel pressure needs it's own gauge. No OEM sensor.
