Cracked manifold....did I do damage to the motor? F 355

I drove my 97 F 355 probably 50 or 100 miles before I realized one of the headers was cracked. It happens to be the left side one. My question is is it likely that I did any damage to the motor? the last two times I drove it I had throttle hesitation that would come and go. I am wondering if that is because of the fuel/air mixture is over compensating for extra air in the system? I guess that leaves me concerned that maybe some damage was done so I'm here on the forums trying to get some much needed answers. Thanks guys. It will likely be weeks before I get it back...worried in the meantime.

I'm not good at this but thinking not unless blowback on the CATs.
