I've no problem with the 1/2 rad concept- a lil lighter, etc.

I don't think the pump will "see" any difference re: volume in the system. Forget about pump loading.

Thermostats regulate temp and improve warm-up times. I am not aware of any data that says they are the limiting factor in cooling system capacity. They rarely fail... or I'm just lucky? Bwaahahahaha!!! I don't see any benefits to disabling them.
