I wouldn't want to stay at 1500 long at all.
If you gear down and run the hill in 3rd at a higher RPM the egts should drop. Or look into getting a larger exhaust housing for your turbo.
I have the 1.15 van housing and I can't get the egt past 1250 if you paid me to. Where as the stock turbo would get as hot as I let it very quicky

There are a couple of 6.0l coolers in the fs section on this forum and others. Might be more than you want to pay but they are there
