Default cell from idle wtf? please help

B18B1 with turbo. SAFC2 for fuel management. The car ran fine before I took it down and added a wideband O2 sensor, and EGT gauges. Now as soon as I crank it, 5 seconds later the CEL comes on and stays on.

I didn't change any wiring from the SAFC2. With the CEL on, when I let off the throttle the engine immediately runs lean until I put my foot back on the gass. Also when I try holding it at a constant RPM, it bogs down and then comes back. When it bogs it runs lean for a second until the RPMs come back up. Car revs and drives fine, just the damn CEL.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

pull the code and see what's wrong. When you added a wideband, did you disconnect your factory o2? or did you just tap another bung?

found the problem, the code was a faulty coolant temp sensor. It gave me the cell because I tried tapping into the line with my VDO temp gauge. Problem solved. Thanks.
