Well those are nice results you're getting now. Did you tune outwards
about 2 turns or so when you installed the larger toroid to keep it in
tune? You may need a breakout point at first on the larger toroid
to find the right tune point, then you can probably remove the
breakout point. The racing sparks are probably just caused by
a little too close coupling. Did you try raising the secondary
by 1" or so to try to stop them?
