Well, you haven't proven it to me yet. I'm still calling it one of those "things I've always heard & believed". Like "set battery on earth or concrete & it will such the juice out of it" or "break a mirror, 7 years bad luck", or "cross the path of a black cat & have bad luck". I've spent hundreds of hours studying thermodynamics and heat transfer & paid the tuition for it & speeding up flow through a heat exchanger (radiator) increases , NOT decreases or even remain equal, the heat transfer until you reach astronomical velocities & you won't reach those velocities by removing the thermostat! To do a decent test, you will need to test, remove & test, replace & test. Beyond the technical, I have removed many thermostats & operated without until convenient to replace & never have I seen anything but lower temperatures without one. Never! Furthermore, if a little extra flow is going to result in overheat as you claim, explain these numbers: Ford N tractors@ 16gpm, NAA@19gpm, '55Chev@48gpm, ZR1 Corvette@85gpm, GMC 305ci/V6@135gpm....and you think removing the thermostat will result in overheating!!! I'll be waiting a long time to see you demonstrate that! It is bull!
