Dredded P1153 After SC install

Sorrow, it's "Dreaded" and not Dredded.

Here's the history:
Ran the car with headers, high flows and Rotofab CAI with a Diablo Intune 91 octane tune and did not have any CEL's.

Installed E-force SC and kept the the Rotofab CAI. Running the E-force tune that came on the SCT tuner.

Just got the P1153 error after about 75 miles of driving after the SC install.

Edelbrock says in their disclaimer their tune is for the SC mod only. It does not take into account a different CAI or headers so I'm guessing I'm running lean(too much air in/out).

I'm going to be getting a custom tune, but how safe is it to run it right now? Got the A/F gauge sitting on my tool box, but waiting for my pod to come in for the install, plus I got to have bung welded in as well, so I can't readily check it right now.

They say the E-force tune is real conservative, so I'm wondering if it's conservative on the side of running rich and therefore if I've added more air flow in/out I've just leaned it out ever so slightly.

I know I'm asking a stupid question(s) here as I should just get it to the shop to be for sure, but getting to a shop is a major ordeal(I live in the sticks in NH). I just would like to know where I'm on the scale of between "Oh shit captain shes going to blow" to "Drive it like it's your cheating ex-girlfriends car".

I wouldn't drive it with the base tune. The code is because of your headers, so as long as you did not beat on it you are prob ok. If you already have a wideband you could do a remote tune. I went through JRE and it was really easy.

The code you're getting is for the rear O2 sensors, because of the headers. You can take the o2 out and take it to advance auto parts and find a non fouler it will fit. That should get rid of the code. Your old tune had them turned off. You should be fine driving the car as long as you stay out of Boost/WOT till you get it tuned.

This isn't the one you need but will give you an idea of what they look like.

You should be fine for a few days before getting tuned. Just installed my EForce, and ran the can tune for a few days, the dyno tune was a drastic difference. Just drive like an old lady for a few days.

Just me but I'd never run a boosted car without a wideband. Did it on my 01 turbo gt and fried the motor when one of my twin pumps bit the dirt. Always use a wideband. It Can save you a ton of money and headaches.

First thing, connect your wideband, see how its running. Then get ahold of someone like Matt from FSP or Phil from Tampa Tuning, and get a remote tune. If you have someone close to you with a dyno, then get it to them for a quality tune.

The wideband honestly should have been the first thing installed.
