Stock exhaust manifolds I'm guessing? Try headers. I had what sounds like the same problem with the DME pulling timing on the top end when I had the stock exhaust manifolds and catalytic converters.

I would highly recommend against an 8500 rpm or even a 7500 rpm rev limit for an M54B30. It's going to take a lot more than solid lifters and upgraded valve springs to support those kinds of engine...

Rear toe absolutely is adjustable. Whether it's from too much toe or worn bushings (allowing toe to change), the rear tires are experiencing excessive wear due to a toe problem.
