Okay, Your ammonia level is still high. Soon you should start reading some nitrites and that will follow with you're seeing some nitrates. Your cycle will be done when you have a reading of 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and some reading of nitrates. Your setup looks great, now is the time to do more reading on the fishes you want and any corals. research is the key to success!

Add a T to your return side from the pump and divert some of the return water back into the sump.

Well you need to "choke" down the output side of your pump, the best way is to have two ball valves and have compete control of the water coming out of your pump. With two valves you can adjust the water flow coming out of your pump without putting to much back pressure on your pump, You could do it with one ball valve and no T if you wanted too
