predator issue and codes

this happened first but reason for post is in second paragraph.
while warming up car figured hook up pred to see real time info. plugged in went to diag, entered real time, entered, then eng started bucking as if cylinders were shutting off and eng revving up and down, looked at pred it said to turn off key and turn on again not run. unsure of what happened turned of car real quick disconnected pred and started again everything seemed okay. drove where i had to go no problems.

next day,
while driving i seen my eng lite come on. i had my pred in car with me so i hooked up and read code. vss came up. figured why speedo still reading, then figured go into real time data. press enter and car started acting funny. eng bucking alarm lite came on, felt like cylinders cutting off. put in neutral quickly unplugged pred. car returned to normal. all this while driving. figured hook pred back up because eng lite still on. checked code again now different one showed up. intake runner stuck open bank one. waited to get off highway. stopped at side of road turned of car and cleared code. went into real time again. this time success. checked to see if vss reading and it was. no eng lite checked for codes and found p1000 obd not readiness something like that. car driving ok went home and parked car.

what could have happened to me?

for those who are following, tom told me to call diablosport and talk to mike in tech support.
mike has told me to send my pred back in for them to check out. there could be something wrong with the pred or bad connection in obd port. he has told me to put old tune back in the send it to diablosport.
hopefully this may help anyone else out if it happens.
