Well my guess would be that since you installed the header and don't have a tune the ECU is trying to compensate.

Do you have a wide band installed? You could see if the engine was just dumping fuel at startup. I would recommend getting a wideband now that you have a header. It would also be needed for remote tuning if you went down that road.
