If the cooling system is working correctly, the only thing the thermostat does is make the engine reach normal operating temp in a short period of time. The engine is designed to run at 190 - 210 degrees as much as possible.
If you leave the thermostat out, it may run cooler, but you will get a check engine light at some point in time if the engine does not reach 190 degrees within 5 or 10 min. And when the check engine light comes on the performance will drop off. And it will use more fuel.

I have a 2004 g35x infiniti tha overheats. i change the water pump,thermosta,radiator cap.took air out of the engien the best that i coud aand stills overheats any ideas? ,

leave the filler cap off and run engine. keep topped up to the top with water, squeeze the pipes around the engine bay to make sure the air is out when it gets up to running temp and fan come on and the bubbles and water level is stable leave to cool down, if the fan does not come on then the thermal switch that turns fan on is not working or the motor for the fan is not working also make sure the heater is on full and make sure the fan speed for internal heat is on number 1.

Engine temperature high

I suggest check coolant levels, fan radiator is workign there? Thermosta clogged or engine temperature sensor go to bad.

How to replace an oil cooler seal on a 99 audi a4

Which engine do you have? On each one, you remove the oil filter and locking nut under the filter. If it's a 2.8 you need to disconnect the coolant lines that run to it as well. On a 1.8 you can leave them connected. Then slide the cooler off and replace the gasket.

Engine runs hot sometimes changed water pump,thermosate, sencor,i have checked with temperature gun 230. 2002 dodge ram 1500 5.9

Did you check your fan clutch? If it runs hot running around town, but cools going down the road this could be it. also check radiator for obstructions like bugs or bent fins.
