With that kind of load, the only thing that will really bring the temps. down and give you some room on the guage is an intercooler based on my experience.

Ya i would say you need an intercooler with that big of a load. You boost will clime a little slower but cooler.

Well, first you need to address the budget. Aftermarket IC's are speeendy. But, you can utilize an IC from a 99+ 7.3L (easiest), or an IC from the 6.0L trucks. (I've heard the 6.0L IC's are a little better, but they're harder to put into an OBS truck that wasn't designed with an IC)
