Default Hooked up water pump bypass hose, overheats now

So I've always ran with the water pump bypass hose capped.

I installed it last night and started it up this morning to do some tweaking to the computer. I glanced at the temp gauge and it was at 220. Shut it down and figured the stat might be bad. Upon pulling the housing I saw that stat was wide open. So than I figured air in the system so I let it run without the cap for a while and during this time the gauge was around 210 with both cooling fans on. Put the cap back on and it climbs quickly.

I don't understand what is going on here.

I think i'll just put it back to where I had it. but gut the stat and run it as a restrictor and see if it overheats

temp sending unit is in the intake..... that is a possibility scott. How would I make sure its not actual coolant temp? I'd hate to run the engine and find out its actually that hot.

the temp on the gauge rises very quickly to. I'm not talking a few degrees in a few mins....more like seconds
