What header, what intake, what code.

Do you have a tune, do you use O2 spacers on the downstream O2 sensors? If not, I'd say you have a cat efficiency low bank 1 and bank 2 code. If p0420 shows up when you scan it and you don't have a tune or spacers on the downstream O2 sensors, there's your issue.

Your spacers aren't working well enough. Do they have a restrictor you can place in them?

Tuning can be done over the internet, we have a couple guys here who do it. You need a Tactrix Openport 2.0 cable and a laptop for either one

I believe Hackish is $350. Unsure about Stayer, I think he's around the same.
