CEL - Secondary Air Filter removal.

So I removed the secondary air filter over the weekend. Everything was fine, I noticed a bit more pick up and better throttle response.

Today I wake up to a Check Engine Light. Any thoughts? The only thing different from the previous 5 days is now the weather is 30 and raining/snowing, the past week has been in the 50's.

I'm stumped, any help/thoughts would be appreciated.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

First thing I would do is check and make sure nothing got accidentally disconnected while you were removing the secondary filter.

Just to add to that, O'reilly's will not read the codes.
