check you hoses...go back thru the manual and make sure that your butterfly valve hose is plugged, and your maf sensor is connected right...and RELAX!!! I had the same hiccup with mine the forst time I had it on, and it turned out to be that the sensor that connected to my maf sensor wasn't connected all the way...but like I said, go back thru the manual, every step, and check all of your hoses, one by one

I had this prob to my car shut off and i restarted the car. the ecu needed time to adjust and make sure you reset the ecu by disconnecting the neg battery terminal. and make sure all your hoses are properly secured thumbsup

i hope this helps
