Transmission cooler post install question

Hey Fellas,

This may seem like an odd questions, but is it possible for the transmission fluid to run too cold after installing a cooler and bypassing the radiator? I did the tru cool 4588 and in VA winter, the gauge sits around 1/4 city driving and 1/8 on the highway at 80mph. I looked around and found some fluid temperature controllers that can be installed on the cooler lines and will open up at 180F.

Here's a pic of where I mounted it, it fit well behind the horns.

I would think so since it is not having the hot antifreeze from the radiator to warm up the fluid. Also, with it being cold in winter I bet you would not get up to temp unless you were towing.
