Have you checked the intercooler boots for boost leaks?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

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.
