The thermostat is a restriction device. If you remove it, the coolant will flow too rapidly for the radiator to do its job properly. Which, the radiators job is to allow cool air to come in from the front of the car and help transfer the heat in the coolant that it gets from the engine. That's why your car will reach operating temperature rather quickly, but it may also cause your engine to overheat. It's a good idea to replace the thermostat, it's only cheap.
