Are you running a restrictor or a thermostat?

see 377 post in this section. Could be your issue as well, along with slipping fan belts.

You mentioned good ducting, but what about the fan shroud? I made great progress last season in the cooling department when I built my own shround that fits well. The fan blades should be half in and half out of the shrould. I also run the 28-31 cap and replace it every season. Have you ruled out a head gasket leak?

Ditch the restrictor.
