I have also adjusted the end point so that at full left/right turn the steering diameters are the same size (left turn circle = right turn circle).

My issue is that when applying power during a right turn, the turn is significantly tighter (smaller in diameter) than when apply power during a left turn. I've been struggling to fine a solution to this problem for quite some time but to no avail.

Thanks
Try raising your ride height in the front a little and maybe lowering the rear slightly. There are plenty of setup changes you can make to gain/reduce on/off power steering.
Less negative camber in the front
Softer front spring
Lighter shock oil
Lay the shocks further over to get more body roll
More droop
Lower roll center
The list goes on and on. I'd start with the most simple changes first (ride height).

Have you checked your diff? Or the other rear drive components for binding of any kind?
If the steering and front end are all even the turn can be effected by the drive.

Usually a busted inner hub bearing or over tightened wheels. But, make sure all suspension components are free front and rear and make sure the exposed shock shafts are the same length left and right.

Shock length is different left to right if the car is not mechanically OK, or tweaked suspension.

Readjusted all the camber on all 4 wheels and that seemed to have solved the issue. I thought I have adjusted the camber on the car, but guess not. Thank you for all your help.
