As for " Ackerman " ( toe out on turns ) , that is dictated by the angle of the steering arm relative to the wheel ( when looking from above. ) Look on the net for a drawing of steering arms / center line of the car.

When using ackerman, a front steer car will have the outer tie rod end close to the tire, a rear steer farther away from the tire.

If you move the outer tie rod end closer to the spindle while keeping along the same angle, you won't change ackerman but you will reduce tie rod travel needed to complete a turn. I did this on a car bu drilling / tapering a new hole along the arm. Not sure if your arm will have enough material or not.
