All my mods done what temp numbers is too much?

2005 F350 SuperDuty 118,000 miles. Just did EGR delete, 5" exhaust (no muffler), EDGE CTS with starter kit and EGT probe, SCT SF3 tuner (currently on performance tune), and Sinister coolant filtration system.

I'm currently monitoring: some I was told to lookup and need help knowing what to watch for?

1. EGT *was told don't get > 10000
2. TFT
3. EOT
4. ECT *was told 190-200 range
5. Boost

These are your upper thresholds and if you keep them below these temps, you will be fine. I usually adjust my CS to issue a warning about 10% prior to the threshold.

1. EGT 1300*F
2. TFT 220*F
3. EOT 250*F
4. ECT 235*F
5. Boost 35psi

About 180*F in normal driving. My rule of thumb is within 100* of IAT1 temps and in summertime, that can get to 120-130*F while sitting at a stoplight or in slow and go traffic.

Do you have the ability to monitor your IAT1 temperature? It gives you a much better indication of the amount of heat that your engine parts are being subjected to, including your radiator, tranny cooler and BPD oil cooler. FYI, there are two intake air temp readings: one in the intake air tube (IAT1) and one in the manifold (IAT2). Even at 50*, if your truck sits long enough, you can get IAT1 temps over 140*.

It wouldn't matter either way. The factory turbo would be out of it's efficiency range and would not give any more power. 30-32psi is really the limit on the factory turbo (30psi for the 05+ and 32 for the 03 and 04 turbos). The heads would hold just fine at those boost pressures with the factory head BOLTS (not studs) if the EGR coolers wouldn't leak coolant into the cylinders.

Just wanted to mention that yesterday with outside temps at 75*F (it was gorgeous!!!), my IAT1 was at 98* and my ECT was 198 and EOT was 196. It was slow and go traffic with speeds sometimes getting up to 45, but other times it was slow with very little go.
