rpm drop and almost die when i tap on gas help!

hey guys i just bought this svt im new to the world. ive been driving it for avoer a week now. drives great! but tonight i went to take the heat sheild off the header becuase only one bolt was holding it on. well i couldnt fit it out of the bay and i hope i didnt smash any sensors and the next thig was i took the shifter counter weight out because i have a bad shoulder. now when i started it up and go to take off the engine rpms drop and i have to reve it way up to get started. even in nuetral just barely pressing on it it almost dies. im worried about it because its my dd. the battery light barely flickers and the lights in the car dim when the rpms drop
