Nice job! I built one myself over the winter and was towards the top of the list so it kept me from going stir-crazy over the winter.
One of the few changes I made from the stock hardware was swapping out the turn fins and just putting one of the Zippkits standard turn fins on the right side. I have one on my other mono and it works very well. I tried a shorter one but it turned terribly on that hull, a lot of skipping in the turns.
I'm on a medical retirement so I've got all kinds of time.

Agreed, looks really good. One change I would have made, if built to race, is reverse the air intake on the top. Only reason is, if you go through a rooster tail, it would minimize water getting into the boat. With the side carb, it's not as much of an issue as a front carb would be as far as water getting sucked into the engine

Where are you needle settings at? Try 2 turns out on the low-speed and one out on the high-speed needle.

The carb is a WT1048

It uses 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 LOW and 1 1/8 - 1 3/8 on the HIGH

I would use 1 3/8 LOW and 1 1/4 HIGH for starting setting.

It may run better without the carb venturi extension.
