Went stage 2 now check eng light-need help

Hey guys I'm new here and to the cobalt ss. I got the stage 2 kit and installed and getting rhe check engine light. I got an 08 cobalt ss and the 3.0 pulley and ecu and got all insyalled and immediately got the check engine light and crazy idling. The car has the full exhaust headers and cold air. Is this typical or do I need to drive to get more miles on the clear codes?

checked then at advance auto and I'm getting 3 codes the throttle body sensor, air temp and crank sensor one as well. Car had no issues or light before installing the stage 2 on it all except the plugs which I wouldn't think would trigger the light but that's why I'm asking you guys the pros. I'm very new to the cobalt but been racing a long time with muscle cars and these are new to me for the supercharger. Can you guys help me with this please. I was going to change out headers but want to grt this done first.

LSJ, L61, or LE5 engine?

Double check your install first.

Did you send your PCM to ZZP and wait on it to come back, or swap yours out for a core?

If the second option, you probably need to do a crank-relearn. You could get someone with HPTuners to do it or pay the dealer.

Can you post the actual trouble codes, i.e. the number?
