Assuming that the thermostat mod was done right, and the transmission cooler is working probably, maybe trans fluid is already in a bad condition.
Other thought is that cooler capacity is not high enough for your need.
Just assumptions.

Feel the passenger side line of the trans cooler.

 

if it’s ambient temp it means your not getting any, or barely any, flow through the trans cooler

 

if it’s very hot, just like the drivers side, it means you are getting flow and your trans is messed up.

If you can, just to double check, find an IR thermometer.  They are not expensive and cool to have to check temps on other things.  Like AC vents and such to make sure it is working well, in the car and at the house.
