Need Help with Exhaust Replacement

Hi All,

Well I finally replaced the exhaust on my 1985 Mustang GT. I went from the
old stock system to the following:

Flowtech headers (Equal length long tubes)
Flowtech Off-Road H pipe
American Thunder Cat-back system from Flowmaster

The sound is phenominal! Now the only problem which I have now are the
following:

-idles at 1,000RPM instead of 800RPM
-At highway speeds of about 120KM/H it starts to chug like it's not getting
enough gas or something and I have to either downshift or slow to 100KM/H.
It then smooths out but it feels like she is hesitating.
-Seems like the engine is shaking sometimes when I am idling. Is this
normal?

So can anybody please help me with what is happening? Carb adjustment
needed or what?????

BTW I have brand new plugs, edelbrock air filter, and 9mm Ford Wires and
fresh oil.

Its a 5spd.

Please help.

Make sure your plug wires are on snug. Pull them off and re connect them.
