Great. I'll take a look at those.

You know the old saying "don't fix it if it aint broke". It comes from real experiences. I'm not saying not to do maintenance or mod, but when you do work on something and it stops working you should know where to look.
Totally. That's why my mind went to the headers, as they were the only thing that got worked on.

This wouldn't be the first time though that I put on a new part and something else happened to go wrong at the same time. Perhaps from the car sitting in the air without being run for a longer stretch, perhaps something else got bumped during the install, or perhaps the new part ended up putting extra strain on something that was already stressed enough.
