You should never ever run straight anti freeze. It is designed to be mixed a minimum 50/50 with water. Straight anti freeze can gel and cause cooling issues.
The thermostat should be what ever temp is called called for as OEM spec. A cooling system that is operating properly will be able to handle any temperatures that you get.
If you run a t-stat that is to low a temp you will get codes and mileage issues.
