Possible T-Stat locked open?
Did you flush the system with the stat in place?
It should be removed when flushing to prevent crap from sticking it open.

Hate it but I've been through a dozen of cheap ones from the national retailers as well, they're all garbage.

Motorcraft/Delco T-stats are what's usually needed.

Did you have this problem before which prompted the flush and new t stat?

Possible that the waterpump blades are gone and not moving the coolant.

Until you confirm things one way or the other, I'm with Riptides on the coolant pump being eaten away.

H20 pump or core still plugged. You confirmed the blend door actuator is fully operational?

+1 on checking the water pump. Its our bad luck that the cooling system on vulcans in these cars is not maintenance free in the least.
