Im working with a bit less than those temps myself and have also read some other post on here of guys with the same set up and issues. Basicly what it seems to narrow down to is make sure you dont have to much junk in front of your radiators (lights,tires,chains bumpers etc....) and one guy actull had to increase the gap between his oil cooler and the radiator and that seemed to fix his issues.
Im changing out my grill as soon as the big brown van drops it off. Also have you looked into the broom fan test? And the manual fan control?

Dump the Wix filter for one. The coolant temp should be around 194* it may be because it's hot out but that is where it should be. If it's been in a long time may be a good idea to install a new thermostat. Use ONLY Motorcraft thermostat and filters.

Like stated above check the radiator and clean as necessary.

Which BPD oil cooler are you running? The full setup with remote oil filter or the setup which retains the OEM filter?

I had spoken to BPD at one point about oil temps and they stated up to 250 is acceptable, and that coincides with Ford because that is where the engine will defuel

Just do a search for broom test, you'll love it. As far as the Atlas 40 I liked the Atlas 80 ALOT more but with pulling loads over the mountains the egt's would become a issue. I thought about fighting them with water/ meth system and a upgraded inter cooler but cash won out and I went the cheaper route. The atlas 40 is still a big improvement over stock but the atlas 80 had me spoiled...
