Subject: 1997 900 SE turbo overheating

hi all, am a newbie owner of a '97 900se turbo hatchback 5dr. Car's been running fine so far but coupla days ago I noticed that coolant had leaked. Found that coolant was leaking from the heater core box so cut the coolant hoses leading to the heater core and joined the 2 lines together using a connector. (Don't need the heater in Florida). Refilled the coolant but found that engine still overheating although coolant level is upto the mark. Purged the system for a long time till I got no bubbles coming out from the coolant tank. Cannot figure out if its the thermostat or the coolant circulation. Please help. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks all, Biki
