Are you on a tight budget? I'm asking because you bought a Jegs converter and small Summit 1 5/8" primary headers you should have installed 1 7/8"! So I'm thinking you might be scrapping dimes! Its not a bad thing trying to build to a budget But it helps us when suggesting things if we know what kind of budget you have to afford the things like a dino session or a turn back dial!

Yes I was on a tight budget and its my first build so I was ordering parts that looked good to me for the little bit of knowledge I had....it runs and drives fine it just doesn't have the umph I thought it would have from a standstill and off idle....but she comes alive around 3k...I don't really want to change much on this setup if I don't have to...this is also just a weekend car so gas mileage is no issue
