Possible from bbks short tube headers?

Just installed my BBK Ceramic short tube headers a few hours ago. Fairly straight-forward install, no major problems, time consuming. tightened everything, great.

Upon starting the car, white smoke started appearing from the headers, Figured it was the pb blaster spray burning off from when i loosened the nuts ect.

fast forward a few minutes, I'm sitting in a drive through, idling. Rpms drop from 750 to 500, car shudders, almost sounds like it wants to turn off. It feels like an intensified idle problem that come with almost all mustangs. (that idle shudder) Im not sure with it is, Im running stock midpipe with it, everything is tightened fine, very tight, with brand new oem gaskets. help

When I had my shorties without the tuner my car would do this ever so often. Once I applied my Bama tunes I rarely get this shudder.

Mine did this white smoking and idle shudder too for about 100-150 miles after the shorties. The smoking is normal for ceramic coated headers. Something they use in the coating process flashes off when they get hot. Mine went back to normal after that 150 miles or so, of course except for the bump in low-midrange power.
