Did the problem start after the head gasket or intake gasket replacement? Did you check the condition of the throttle body?

Any codes?

I would look at the intake gasket again to make sure it is sealing. If you can keep it running long enough to get it into closed loop, what are your fuel trims? Off the top of my head, sounds like it is running lean.

Have you thoroughly checked that all wiring, etc. was properly reassembled after the head gasket job? Have you checked the IACV?
