The Allison AT 545 is an EXCELLANT match to the DT360, even at 210 or 230 HP. You will need a seperate external cooler, but you would with any trans. They will not run very warm at all in a light vehicle like you have. Even pulling HARD, I would be supprised to see 200*F ATF temps. if you used a radiator type cooler, and lower yet if an air-to-oil (ATF) cooler is used.
The DT360 does NOT need a CAC in 160-185 HP trim, that was done for emissions. At 190HP or more, you need the CAC to keep combustion and exhaust temps in check.
The pump from a same year DT 466 will fit as a direct replacement, for the DT 360 FYI.
