You need a advance timing light run the motor 3,200 rpm and set the timing to 34/35 degrees.

Try the pressures and see how it works.
You need to add weight in the rear as well. As far as the sway bar let it be for now. Then the following week try working the sway bar. Put theaded rod on the left side and tighten it down about an inch shorter than the right. From there you should only need small changes. But like I said try with out changing sway bar first. You may like just like that.
