More than likely you have some bent valves which can lead to alot of money to fix. If you can do it yourself try to find a wrecked one or one with a bad bottom end and just get there cylinder heads and put on your motor with a new timing belt.

You could run your car without a thermostat, but it is not advisable to do so for long periods. This should just be a temporary fix.
The reason is that the engine is designed to run at a temperature designed by the manufacturer, usually around 80 - 90 degrees C. If you remove the thermostat, the engine will tend to run cold, and the cylinder furthest away from the radiator intake will eventually show more wear than the others. with the wear becoming sequencially less toward the front cylinder.
At first it will seem to make no difference, but eventually your engine will start smoking and using excessive oil until you have to overhaul it, boring out the cylinders and fitting new pistons. Rather find the real reason for the overheating and extend the life of your engine.
