Leave the chip out and give it a couple days. That thing just tricks the PCM in thinking the air is colder and thus denser so it adds more fuel. But the O2 sees it'* rich and leans it back out after a little while.

TRIPLE check your plug wires.

Also, if you really threw the PCM out of adjustment THAT much, (doubt you did, just conjecture from here out) you may want to take off your negative battery cable for 30 minutes to reset it..

Check all the areas you were in. Look for vacuum hoses that are broken or bad. Any obvious electrical items unplugged or bad.

Most likely I think you bumped something or unplugged something. If all you did was add the resistor and then remove it, that shouldn't cause a need for plugs/wires. It also shouldn't allow the PCM to adjust that much and cause this type of issue.

Please change the title of this post. All caps/with no description or hint of the possible issue is not going to help you draw the attention of people with experience on your problem. A suggestion would be "Poor Idle/Running"
