I am trying to get a sprinter to run at over 79 deg celcius.

Customer Question

I am trying to get a sprinter to run at over 79 deg celcius. The locals tell me there is only one thermostat available and that's that. Any ideas apart from blocking off the radiator? Please?.
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has any work ever been done on the radiator?
Customer: @30,000 no radiator work.
JA: What year is your Sprinter?
Customer: 2010
JA: Are you fixing your Sprinter yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Pulled the thermostat, it's OK. I have checked the block temp with a laser gauge, and it is definitely running cold
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I am the chair of the Automotive Engineers in the area and I really has a grasp of the condition.
