Default BEWARE: Check Engine Light & Sprint Booster

I installed the Spring Booster back in late Dec/early Jan and it worked flawlessly...at least initially. But today, after a spirited drive, the throttle response was intermittent, delayed and jerky. There's vibration when shifting and when I pulled the car into the garage, a gentle tap on the gas made my car lunged forward - was a bit scary. Car threw a check engine light shortly after. SB was installed correct and was left in the green mode with a setting of "4". Side toggle is set to "AT" as per instruction.

Does anyone know where the plugin for OBD2 port is? I want to check for code.

Found the OBD2 port (under right hand side of driver's dash) and here's the what I found and did:

- OBD2 Scanner shows a "P0121" Code which relates to Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor (pic attached).

- Removed the Sprint Booster, cleared the code and drove it for 10 miles and the car behaved perfectly fine. No roughness in throttle application or shifting.

Not saying definitively the check engine light was caused by the Sprint Booster, but there seems to be a strong correlation.
