This question has been on my mind so I throw it out for comments. Would it be a positive change for eng temp to remove the thermostat? I don't know the opening temp but given that coolant temps run as hot as they do the thermostat has to wide open all the time other than when first starting. The thought here is that the thermostat may be somewhat restrictive and taking it out would increase coolant flow. Other than a longer warm up period I can't find any logical reason for it to be in there. Comments please.
