That being said, I have been running without one for 2 years now with no ill effects. The temp never goes above halfway, even on really hot, humid summer days. She also barely registers any temp at all in the winter, (never reaches "operating temp") I know this is not ideal, but I haven't had a heater core for a couple of years, so it doesent really bother me. (besides, both t-stat housing bolts broke off in the intake, and it's being held on with a hose clamp & permatex, so I won't touch it if I don't have to.)
basically "do as I say, not as I do." I'd run the T-stat.
