    you mean as in the car hesitates, specify whether you have a manual or auto, and the description of the problem is vague

    on any gear the car hesitates when the throttle is opened more than half way when driving down the road

    i had the same problem after my header install, i changed the spark plugs and put in 2 new o2 sensors, it solved the problem, you should also get a tune, but its not crucial headers dont exceed the parameters on the factory ecu, very rarely will you need a tune after the header install,
