The gas issue could be a ton of issues from fuel to electronic. Does it rev up fine at idle and in the low gears or is the issue throughout every gear? Did you run it low on gas?
The death wobble could also be a ton of issues. Is there play in any of the steering linkages? Are the tires balanced correctly (can check doing a tire rotation to see if it gets any better or the shake moves to the rear)? Are the bushings in the control arms good? Are the hubs and ball joints good? To rule out a u-joint, grab the drive shaft and shake it to see if there is any play in it. I have yet to see a u-joint cause death wobble issues.
