You probably have a faulty (or missing) secondary 02 sensor. There should be an 02 sensor located right after the catalytic converter. If there isn't, then that's your problem. Any 02 sensor related problem will cause the car to run rich (lean is bad for the motor, rich just wastes gas).

having headers is part of the problem as our cars require only 1 header...
