HELP! Power Reduced Message after installing catch can?

Can somebody give me some insight on why I would be getting a Power reduced message on my HUD after installing elite engineering oil catch can? Everything is hooked up just like the instructions call for... but when I started my car after the install it ran good, untill i revved it up, then it started to sputter, and it gave me that message.

I've doubled checked to make sure I plugged all of the sensors in.. I'm worried that I might of messed something up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take it off and see if it goes back to normal. If not take it to the dealer. Chances are it could just be dumb luck that something went wacky at the same time.

unhook your battery for about 30sec to a min. and then start it up and try it again. Should go away.

Maybe you have a vacuum leak. Go back and double check to make sure all the lines are hooked up correctly.

Thanks for all of your help, I recheck to make sure everything was hooked up, after confirming that it was, I started it up and it ran fine, took it for a set drive... No problems. So I honestly couldn't tell you what happened.

Thanks again

I've had no problems with mine. But I also disconnected the battery during install. I'm bit sure if that does anything or not

Yea, I forgot to disconnect my battery, hopefully I didn't ruin anything... It seems to be running fine after 150 miles.
