Parallel VS series cooling in the heads is what your talking about.....Parallel will produce a better (even) heat dissipation BUT both will work OK.....
As I've said before there ain't no reason for that engine to go over 15 whatever thermostat is placed in your engine....
I personally run a 180 T-stat from "Stewart" water pumps along with his stage one pump (cast iron) and with that combo the heating problems ceased.

Don`t know what to tell ya, ya hear so many different things, you`d think a GM machanic would have the answer.
