There's nothing abnormal about any engine mod throwing a CEL... Have you reset your ECU and made sure your vacuum hose is attached properly? To reset your ECU simply disconnect your battery and wait a few minutes then reconnect. Give those a try if you haven't and see if it helps. If the CEL comes back you'll need to take it somewhere and have the engine code read to see what exactly is throwing the CEL.

You need to move the airfilter fartherdown on the intake side. Not right on the maf, because that will not smooth the air out enough. You are probably getting a code for a bad maf.

move the filter farther away down the line with some piping from autozone.
