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.
