I will be glad to help if you can send me about a 8-10 min idle log with starting the log then the car
My guess is a Vac leak and a datalog would confirm this , about the only other thing that would make the headers glow is timing retarded from the cams or VCT

I wouldnt guess I would do a datalog and see whats happening
