If you remove the thermostat, it may run cooler but still can overheat, but what you will end up with is uneven engine temp that will affect sensors and performance. These engines are designed to run at a temp of round 195 +/-..

The thermostat is usually in the block where the top rad hose attaches to engine, not real sure what you are talking about in
The lower hose. A pic might be helpful to see what you are talking
about.

He is most likely talking about the sensor that reads the temp and goes to the gauge. if he is talking about the thermostat it is at the top of the block with 3bolts, sometimes i take it out during the summer but it should DEFF be in during the winter or else your truck will take way to long to get warm and it is bad for the motor
