I had very similar results. I documented a 6 degree lower vent temp when I bypassed my core.

Check your Freon level. You probably can add some. I get 52 degrees out the vent. South Florida. 95 degrees 90 percent humd.

From a previous post of mine: ...........
My AC starts at 52 degrees and maxes out at 58 degrees after 1 hour of city driving. 96 degrees outside with 107 degree heat index. I was out today verifying the cooling power of my ac.

Bypass heater core.
Insulate duct.
Tweaked freon level to obtain 248 on high gauge and 39 on the low gauge. 39 on the low side is a good sweat spot. I did some testing.
