Running without a thermostat is guaranteed to over heat. The thermostat acts as a restriction to the flow of coolant. Without the restriction you coolant is being circulated at 100MPH through the radiator. The transfer of heat from coolant through the radiator cannot take place because it is not in the radiator long enough to accomplish its job.
