i would start with 6 or 8 psi and see how your EGT temps are, and go from there.

you seem to know all ready but ill say it for others...
24/1 with a turbo is truly in a hazmat zone for faluer, if you don't know your EGT and boost presser, even then a long grade under load could take it out.

on the 6.2L they had pore cooling of the rear most pistons and the added stress of a turbo can take them over the braking point.
i love the electric water pump idea, BUT. if its pumping to fast or slow it could cook the engine do to lack of cooling. other than that its a grate idea.

your using a 6.5L block with 6.2L heads right? this should help the rear piston over heat/valve cracking/piston melting/ issue.

theres two gen of 6.2L if you did'ent know.
later heads have smaller valves to take the added stress, ford 7.3L 1993/94 and isuzus 2.2L 1986/87 did the same thing with there IDI diesels when they made them turbo d with the high compression.
before computerized DI injection came to on road use.
1 86 T\D trooper with rare GEN 3 rods TRANS FIXED NOW DD
1 86 4WD 5sp pup is 2.3L gas, but plan on 2.2L diesel repower
1 91 trop, long term plan is a group buy of imported Isuzu 4JB1-T 2.8L I-4 engines, hoping to get price down to 2K not 3K plus
