Mine does this also(the gasoline smell), mainly when it is cooler outside. Even with a tune our cars idle very high to get the car to ideal operating temp quicker upon startup. This is just the nature of eco cars. You took out the cat of your car when you removed the stock exhaust manifold and installed the header thus all of the gas vapors come out of the exhaust, none are catalyzed. It couldn't hurt to check the line, I will check mine this afternoon just to be safe. But if yours is like mine it is mainly upon startup and when it get colder
