If you don't run dual thermostats I wouldn't put a high flow water pump on it because you can only flow as much as the thermostat will flow. If it was me I would convert it to the high flow water pump and dual thermostats. Also make sure your radiator is clean as the day the truck was new and your exhaust is flowing free.

Who makes the super cool kit? Will it work with mechanical injection?
Since adding the Side Winder turbo I can't tow an empty trailer without temps going over 260. Last summer I towed a 17 foot fiberglas boat from Canada to North Carolina on Rt 81 and had to run the hills in 3 gear, no ac.

SSD, DSG and Heath diesel both offer different cooling kits, but they seem to be only for 94-2000 year of 6.5's. I wouldn't be suprised though if the water pumps wouldn't fit a 6.2.

My truck would spike in temp here about 4 or 5 years ago just pulling a little bumper hitch. I ran radiator flush in the engine for about a week.... You shoulda seen the black stuff that came out of there! Then pulled the radiator, flushed it with a garden hose, cleaned the fins, and flushed the engine with garden hose (Make sure it's cool first). Put back together..... 2 years ago, I towed my sister's gooseneck trailer grossing close to 13k combined and never even started to warm up past normal. That was blasting the AC too.

Oh, and stock cooling system in my case....

just make sure your radiator is really clean i worked on a 95 with a 6.5 and when i pulled the grill off and pulled the ac condensor out of the way it was nasty the fins of the radiator were plugged solid with bugs and dirt so after 4 cans of engine degreaser and hot water it was good as new and no more overheating.
