Any ideas? Maybe a partial block for the summer?
Add auxiliary thermostat, it's a proven trick.

Renault B14 engine uses radiator hose thermostat which opens at 89 C. Locals are installing these to commonrail mercedes diesels to get the temp up. You'll find a picture of it by searching with a word "letkutermostaatti"

edit. Found Wahler product codes, they'd be 3029.86 3029.89 and 3029.92 for different temps.
