I picked up an infrared thermometer and the temps aren't as bad as I thought. These temps were recorded after 45 minutes of city and highway driving.

Valve cover: 150-160
The front of the head: 170
The top of the radiator: 165
Upper radiator hose: 160
Lower radiator hose: 100
Exhaust manifold: 200-230
Intake Manifold: 155-165

Seems like everything is in order and functioning properly. Still plan on replacing the radiator due to inconsistent flow observed.
