removing the thermostat will damage the engine. it must be there and functioning.
i would check the cooling fan for failure.
i would also recommend a shop to do a coolant diag to pin point your issue before you damage your motor.
i put in new fans why only when ac on takes about 15 mins then turn off ac cools right down
you may have a blown head gasket. a leak down test from a shop will verify.
