hesitation stumbling after vtcs removal?

I have a 2003 protege es manual. I have removed the vtcs butterflys and rod from the intake manifold back in december. Lately i notice the engine stumbles a bit and feels like its gonna stall when i first start it and try to take off from my driveway . . Problem goes away after i leave my driveway which is about 30-60 seconds. Anyone else notice this problem after removing the vtcs butterflys?
Note: i also have obx headers that leaks a little bit from the egr connection been doing that ever since i installed it a few years ago. Everything else is stock. Regularly maintained. Any inputs appreciated. '
