Hello Duke, I always recommend using a thermostat or at least the restrictor ring with the plunger and spring removed. The reason, your engine car run too cool without a thermostat when it is cold. This can affect performance and fuel economy. The bottom line, the hotter your engine can run without boiling over or over heating, the better your engine runs. Closed cooling systems can operate in excess of 2oo degrees with no problems.
