Limp mode after headers/vmax insulator Ice*olater

Alright bud's..
The Vmax Ice*olater (i forgot how they spelled it) was installed. I felt it was done wrong with the rtv bs.. I felt as if it was not sealed right with a delay of acceleration -*first off all I got to say is the instructions suck, paperwork they sent told me to do it one way and online it showed a different way* So i come to you guys and see people are adding bolts and 2 gaskets Im like "Da Hell is going on with this thing?!" So I take it off and do the rtv again, I saw I put too much last time apparently because rtv was in the ports. So i did it again and sealed I guess.

Installed the Headers. Added HI flow cats. and an Xpipe.
*Limp Mode Appears briefly.

Then the Catch can
*limp mode appears more often*

Removed the Vmax Ice***
*Limp mode from car on to car off*

From my understanding.. An exhaust leak wouldn't make it go into limp mode..

When I checked the codes its The Exhaust banks and the 'actuator' thing-a-ma-jig for the catch can.

But different temperature in the engine would.. So Im guessing IM sealing the shit out of this thing the wrong way and I can only point towards the Vmax Ice*** highly doubt the catch can would do anything wrong right?
(I have the top port going to the back and the side hose going to the front of the intake)

I hope I dropped enough info for you guys to help me trouble shoot some stuff.

well I would first pick up another gasket for the ice olater. Not worth the mess/hassle with RTV.

Check all your connections, post any pics that you're unsure about. Helps to see how everything is routed.

Indeed, I purchased the other gasket just awaiting the bolts. (Thank you Ventmaster for the specs.)

Problem Solved! sealed and All ! Initially the VTC was setting it off to limp mode.. I guess I forgot to reprogram it when the battery was disconnected. It would instantly go to Limp from the start

Are you saying you can avoid having to use RTV on an iceolator install by buying a gasket? If so, do you have a link? I'm planning on installing and iceolator soon.
