The first things I noticed about your cooling are the very thick core of the radiator, I think more than likely it may be contributing to your issue. I don't care for the spiral hoses either, I prefer the molded ones as they don't affect the flow. Double check your belt routing. Your timing can also be an issue from what I've read here. Removing the pusher fan was a good idea, all it does it block air flow. The pullers looked to be marginal also. Going to the Intrepid setup is a step in the right direction, just make sure they're wired correctly and seal to the radiator with a proper shroud. You've sealed up the radiator to the support so that's good. Not knowing how the core was constructed it's hard to say what's going on there, single tube is way better than multiple tubes.
