ya thats a good temp man. as long as you stay below 1200. dont push 1400 for more than a 1/4 mile or you will get engine too hot. possibly melt a piston or up pipe or damage turbo.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.

ya. the stock gauges are basically dummy lights. As long as its pointed toward normal its good to go.

should be ok if your not towing a ton of weight. they are sort of hit or miss. some guys have the stock trans in their trucks forever, some wear out quick. how does it shift? how many miles are on it? what are you looking to use the truck for?
