Have you double checked sensors nearby (airflow meter) ?
I'd put back to standard, flick ignition on and off a dozen times, and see how it goes.

The ecu should adjust to small changes and values. Have you tried flicking ignition on and off a dozen times or so? Maybe it's come up as it was un-plugged or something.
I would test with standard items in place, to see if it's a fault isolated to the running of the new filter, and not something you've broken/upset when fitting.
Maybe it doesn't like sucking in hot air?

Nah, I had an ecotec cav, done that hundreds of times! :lmao:
I would put it all back to original, and get it running, and see how it goes.
The performance filter may be more trouble than it's worth, especially if you don't deal with shielding it from the engine heat.
