There is no code 321 421 is catalytic converter threshold effiecentcy problem on bank one . check fuel pressure with a gauge may be low causing this auto parts rent gauge but yo may need an adapter.

It could, it would make the engine run lean that is why isaid to check it. It cold be an O2 sensor or partially plugged converter as well but seeing as it's on both banks you have said about other things happening i'd start there first especially if it's a turbo it' should be 39 psi at idle and should not drop after being revved several times.
