The thermostat probably isn't helping or hurting you but it will make the engine run better if you put a stock 192 back in it.
We've had this discussion many times with these cars. Unless the car is spewing coolant, IT'S NOT OVERHEATING.
What makes you think it is overheating? A stupid Ford gauge pointing to L means nothing. Pressure in the radiator hose? That's normal. First step is to get a real aftermarket gauge. Find a gauge pod you like. Analog or digital...doesn't matter. Mechanical or electric...doesn't matter. Just get a good gauge. I used the crossover tube plug/fitting and recommend it. In case you haven't heard, the oil pressure gauge doesn't actually do anything either.
