6ts pyro too hot. Need advice

I have a 550 6ts with 58 injectors in a fl classic heavy haul truck. I had a low interlock 5ek 550 file flashed in it with 5232 injector codes and fls/fts codes, though I don't remember what they are. Truck is all stock minus a duralite cac, and Pittsburgh power mufflers 6 months ago. My pyro will get up to 900 normal driving while empty (50k) and 1100 while loaded 120-155k pounds. Going west on 80 in Iowa and Nebraska I can hardly stay in top gear because it gets so hot. I'm always having to downshift sometimes 3 gears, especially if I'm in elevation. Elevation makes it intolerable. I have access to cat et, and I'm willing to throw whatever parts you guys suggest at it, ie turbo, manifold or custom tune. Just want it right.
