Did you burp the air out of the system after changing those parts? It sounds like the thermostat isn't opening which is why the lower hose is still cold. Click my screenname, go to my tips and tricks, and choose the one about burping the cooling system - it may help you out.

SOURCE: Overheating problem
i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

SOURCE: heater not getting hot
You need to check the car t cold start up by checking both the lower and upper radiator hoses. After a few minutes one should be hotter than the other. If not the themostat may be stuck open. also chech to ee if there is heater contro valve from the engine to one of the hoses going to the heater core and see if it actuates by moving the temperature control from cold to warm.
