Default One header is hotter than the other--What do I do????

I went on a cruise the other day and the weather was hot. The truck did not overheat but it got hot, 210 degrees so I shut it down. So I started it today and noticed that is was running like [email protected]#%. So I put new plugs in and it helped a little. We also adjusted the timing. But the driver's headers were not getting hot. You could not touch the passenger's side headers and they were very hot. Some one said it could be my MSD that had failed and others say that the carb is to fat or to lean. If you did not know, this is the INSANE truck with two 671 blowers on a cross ram manifold. Please help. I have a parade tommorrow and would like to drive it but don't want to hurt the truck either.
Thank you

Maybe one of the blowers crapped out?

Well it ended up being that I for got to tighten down the back bolts on the on blower scoop that went to the carb plate. What a dumb ass.
Thanks anyway I will try to post a pic.
