I have seen it do that if your IMRC motor can't return to the fully closed position. The code is something like "IMRC stuck open" . It is because the linkage is bound up or in my case I had misaligned the motor when I reinstalled it. Take it off, clear your codes, and reinstall it and make sure the tabs for the butterfly rod are securely in the notches on the motor flange. It could still be coming a\on because the adjustment screw is keeping the butterflies from fully closing. Try these two things before you freak out. it's not that bad, probably just out of alignment.

I had the same problem when going back to stock. My EXPERIENCE was a little worse not only did I get the engine light but a shaking or bogging down like no air was getting thru air intake. What I did was disconected the battery. Let it set for 5 to 10 min. and reconnected and no more check engine light. and know more shaking I don't know why that helped the shaking. But I'm not going to complain. I believe by doing that I rebooted the computer to stock parameters.

i had the shaking and bogging to..... lol but my dumb ass didnt plug the mass air flow sensor back on... after i plugged it in, it was all good. but now it seems to have more power than before... it accelerates faster than ever. my girlfriend and friend noticed the diff.
