Exclamation 2002 Eclipse Gt Spyder 3.0L OverHeats

I have a 02 Mitsubishi Eclipse V6 and it overheats. I replaced the radiator with a new one w/lifetime warranty. Still got hot, not red line hot but pretty close. Then it started dripping water from the water pump. Have lifetime warranty on that as well so replaced it, no problem. Its on the timing belt but all dots were aligned when it came off and on, marked it with red nail polish to make sure it didn't come off.

Car runs great runs cool for a while then it starts to get hot. Both fans are working. No water leaks. New radiator cap and hoses.

When I had the water pump off I flushed the two inlets to the motor and the pipe leading to the other side of the engine. Water flow was good, pretty sure its not clogged.

Heater works so I don't think that's clogged.

I'm out of suggestions, I have no Idea what else I can try.

Any suggestions, Pls???

Thermostats are needed to cool properly. Coolant is often directed with it and removing it can a actually cause it to overheat. Install a new one.
