Nah, the computer doest adjust to the operating temperature, the sensor has fixed resistance values. If your car was running cold (depending how cold) then the computer simply increases fuel mixture to increase rpm to prevent rough running and stalling when the block is cold. Since you have fixed the thermostat, the engine will heat up to the correct temp. Yes it will increase fuel efficentcy if yer engine is runnin at the correct temp.
