Weapon R shortram

I just got a weapon r Short Ram for the GTS and the check engine light comes on after about an hour of driving after I reset the ECU. The problem: when I reset it and start the car, the car doesnt want to run and will stall unless I give it gas and rev it to abouyt 4000rpms, what the hell is wrong?

Make sure the MAF has a good seat & is in tightly. Make sure it is clean also.

o shit man, my car did the same thing man but i didn't have nothing in my car. i actually switched my CAI back to the stock Intake.

my dealership's had my car in the shop for 2 weeks now and they said that the VVT-i controller chip (controls air flow into the engine and other electrical circuits) fried and something else fried too...
