Question Traction Bars Help. And Upgrade Help!

First time to the site looks like im going to find a lot of useful information here but here is my setup and my problem i have h&s mini maxx race tuner on hot damn hot tune with afe stage 2 intake, water methanol injection system (yes i know it doesn't help much but it does enough for egts of what i needed but disappointed in hp gains if any?) and cal trac traction bars. still getting pretty nasty wheel hop or axle wrap on launches i have "tuned" the bars down to the rollers barely pressing on leaf spring with me in the cab any help or advice if i could launch at 20 psi that would be amazing at the track but any launch over id say 10-14 psi i get bad wheel hop. Also i have tried my tire psi at anywhere from 35-40psi any help is greatly appreciated. As far as REAL NEAR FUTURE upgrades go what does everyone think of me doing a cac pipe upgrade,CCV Mod To Catch Can and turbo socks or what is an affordable noticeable gain i haven't done, Also Which CCV Mod Is Recommended. I have the egr delete kit but i have not executed it yet on the truck if i did that would i notice a difference since i already have it turned off through the tuner? THANKS IN ADVANCE for all your greatly appreciated advice!

Warm up the tires and lower air pressure to help them hook. How about air bags?

Do you have an kind of lift?
You can remove the stock
Blocks and put some lift springs to make up for the removal of the blocks. The blocks encourage axle wrap

Well if you want less axle wrap then you're gonna want to have the bars adjusted so that they have pressure against the axle. It sounds like you have them too loose from reading your first post.
