Issues with heat

Hey all this is my first post to this site, but I am sure it wont be my last, I have a 12' 350 DRW KR with the 6.7 and love the hell out of that truck. However I came here because a friend of mine has a 97 7.3 350 DRW that he just picked up. It already has an aftermarket trans cooler, turbo down pipe, airbags, pyro meter (not sure location of meter) and from what I can tell a mild exhaust. Here is where my knowledge on these old guys fade away...when he runs stock pulling nothing he is around 800 degrees...that seems a little hot to me. When he pulls his 5th (14K lbs)..I know a little more than ford spec, he is already toying around 1200 degrees at 45 MPH. This is all on a stock tune. This seems odd that it is running this hot. What could be going on here?

Restricted stock intake? Or clogged filter, that is very heavy still in any event, seems like an ic would help your friend dramatically, is he down shifting out of od as well? And welcome to the org, you should get your friend to join too

After market K&N, clean as a whistle. I dont think he wants to dump the $$ into an IC. I mean for running at 800 on flat road in 60 degree weather, I/we have to think something else is up.? He put in a TS Switch Chip and set it to 50HP and it did not change a thing, well power wise it did, but temp wise nada. I am lost.

Boost leak or exhaust leak (pre-turbo). Probe placement is important but with that said probes don't last forever. Borrow a IR thermometer and hit the manifolds to see how close they are to each other. 1200* is entering danger zone.
