It sounds like your engine’s ECM may be struggling to make adjustments to the new headers. If the oxygen sensor is not locating close enough to it’s original placement, it may be causing the oxygen sensor to not reach the proper operating temperature which means it may continue to produce false readings. When this happens, the computer will continue making adjustments to adjust the fuel mixture to where it thinks it needs to be relative to the original exhaust that was on the car. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle to correct this.
