I have checked for leaks and can't find any. I put new cats on as well. Thinking it might be a intake manafold gasket?
It is very possible! Or a faulty oxygen sensor in bank 1.

I replaced those as well. It's crazy that it runs good and then later that day starts to run like crap
we see intermittent all of the time at the shop. It is possible for it to run great for some time and then all of a sudden start running rough.

Do you have any further questions, sir?

Is it possible that the intake manafold is warped?

Yes, sir, that's possible... but not very likely.
