Running rough and a glowing header smacks of severely retarded ignition timing. When syncing the engine with what's loaded in the map with aftermarket engine management, we use a timing light and the starter. It gives a pretty good indication as to where it is to get it started.

Not sure where your timing is supposed to be at idle with zero vacuum (cranking), but the 1:30 position is around 45* ATDC, which is severely retarded.
