I just replaced the flush and fill components in the tank, and everything looked good (no leaks!) When I look in the bowl when flushing,there is a huge gush of water upward and it splashes all over the place. I tried adjusting the chain in the handle, but haven't had any noticeable results. Help?

You see a gusher in the bowl? Where is it coming from? There is a jet in the bottom and holes around the rim.

It's like the flush velocity is way too much and the water literally comes up too high with a lot of force when you flush. It hasn't exploded onto the floor yet, but it might if the toilet seat were up, or at least be kinda of messy. Before I messed with it, it was...a kinder, gentler flush.
The replacement parts were from Fluidmaster and there is a dial on the flapper to adjust the flush...9 being the highest, but even at 1 I haven't noticed any difference in the force.

you probably have the water level in the tank too high. Lower the level a bit at a time until you have the correct pressure. Toilets work on gravity and the more water in the tank the higher the pressure will be.

The water level could indeed be too high. The level should be 1" below the top of the overflow, and no higher than the level of the level line inside the tank. This line should be either in black ink, or molded into the tank itself.
Good Luck
