Question '95 LTI runs bad after rebuild

I recently rebuilt my 1995 camaro z28 and now it shakes in cold weather, feels like the tranny is slipping, barely shakes in warm weather, and whenever I get on it and it shifts into the next gear it will kind of go dead until I get off the gas. When I rebuilt it and ran it for the first time it shook really bad so I replaced the flexplate and that fixed that. It has stock crank, rods, pistons, lt4 hot cam, 1.6 ratio roller rockers( which seem to make more noise now than before the rebuild), headers, cold air intake. Also the oil pressure is lower than before the rebuild even though I replaced the oil pump with a high volume unit.

Re: '95 LTI runs bad after rebuild

Just to add a little info. I disconnected the torque converter from the flywheel to see if the engine would run a little smoother. But the harmonic balancer still wobbles ~1/8 to 1/4 of an inch or so and I looked at my friends '94 run and his balancer barely wobbles at all( less than 1/16th of an inch if I were to guess). I also forgot to say that there was and still is a nice amount of shimmer in the oil. The more and more I think about it I think the engine wasnt balanced right. Any help would be appreciated.
