I have searched the inter web with little success.

Recently had headers installed among other service items and while the power is great once you get going, I have stalled a few times pulling away in first gear.

I have put about 25k miles on the car so I am fairly familiar with it. It has made my recent drives just a tad less enjoyable as I have to concentrate more to avoid bogging or slipping the clutch too much.

Am I experiencing the effects of torque loss due to the headers or should I be looking elsewhere?

Thanks for the input...

Codes? Anything more useful? Headers at low end won't change anything - in this regard.

What were the other service items?

No codes... I did have the oil separator hoses and breather hose replaced, T-stat, driveshaft and some other unrelated items like brakes.

Unplug the MAFs (assuming not an AlphaN tune of course...) and see if it's better or worse?
