Hey guys, I just installed the FC race header on my car....while putting it on I disconnected the battery to reset the computer, I drove it around a little bit afterwards, and when I come to a stop it idles kinda rough and feels like it wants to stall....I was wondering if this was the car "relearning" how to function and stuff, and if so, how long should I drive before I gets normal again, thanx

sounds like a leak of air what was the torque that you did on the bolts?

I checked it out, and it sounds like an air leak from the EGR valve,where it bolts up by the intake manifold. Would this cause such problems? It also seems to be running very rich, you can smell it in the exhaust.
