If you have Kadrons, then 1.5# fuel pressure.

If you have Weber/Dellorto/Solex, then 3# pressure.

Back out of your fuel system "upgrades" one step at a time:  Kinked hose/line somewhere?  It sounds like a clogged fuel filter so you're not getting full flow - can you by-pass the filter with a short piece of hose one at a time to see if that helps?  Do that for the fuel pressure regulator, too.  If you have a single filter before the pump, that's all you'll need - one after the pump isn't necessary.  I doubt that it's the pump, as it had been working OK before the changes, so I would suspect one of the upgrades. One of the upgrades was that 10' of hose, which is cheap.  Get another 10', make sure it has no obstructions and re-install.  That's all I've got.

If you can feel the scratchiness in the steering wheel, then I would suspect the bearing at the top of the column, right under the steering wheel.  What is in there depends on the year of the VW donor column.  54 - 67, 68 - 70 or 71 - 79 all have different top bearings and different spacers.  Long way to ship, but this might show you different ones to get something closer:
