EGR Delete installed, SCT Tuner, Gauge install help?

So I have my EGR delete kit installed, and had my SCT custom tunes installed, but my rear brakes were locking up on my economy tune so I took it off and haven't had any issues since.

My 05 hasn't thrown a hard CEL yet, and I am checking tomorrow PM to see if it is throwing the EGR code or not. Im thinking not.

Anyways, anyone have any experience in Cbus or around installing EGT gauges, Boost, and Trans gauges? I have everything including a CFM installed with the port, and a friend who has done it to his lightning, but Im still a tad nervous. I will buy food, beer, and fuel, for anyone that can come to help.

Groveport is where my house is, my friends live in Gahanna where we will most likely be doing the gauges, he did go to school for this kinda stuff so I m hoping that helps. I work at Chase in Polaris.

So had Ricart and my mechanic both look at it. Neither could come up with anything... The Ricart tech took it home for the night to try to simulate something by driving it around Cbus. He took it out early in the day, pulled the wheels off and took the calipers apart to find nothing wrong.

My ? is, is it worth having the tech replace everything from the master back, if they can't find the issue, including calipers? Such as fluids, lines, and calipers? I do not want to spend a ton of cash as I just dumped a lot in the truck for routine maint. and I feel I might have something seriously wrong here.

Any other ideas? Should I just have them replace the calipers and call it quits?
