      Before you go diging under the valve covers I'd try checking the compression.

      Do a dry check and then a wet check.
      Wet check - squirt a tablespoon of oil in the cylinder then check compression again...after the dry check.
      The wet check will help seal the rings and gives an indication of how the valves are.
      There should not be a large difference in the dry/wet test.
      Check each spark plug for spark.
      It sounds like you've lost either compression or spark in one of you cylinders.
      You menitioned that each header pipe is hot at idle but if you have a weak coil you may loose spark under load.

      Get back to us with anymore info and we'll be glad to help.
      it's my opinion......that's what makes it mine..
