Need help! Intake problem

I just got done installing an intake for my prelude couple days ago. Then i start driving it for one or two day and my check engine came up P0401. I'm not sure what to do.

That code shouldn't be the result of installing an intake. Try disconnecting the battery for 20min to reset the ECM, drive the car for a few days and see if the code comes back.

That will get rid of the CEL but it the code will still be in the computer. The only way to get rid of it is fix the problem. Maybe its the EGR valve.

Yep your (ECU/ECM) needs a reset, like he said disconnect your battery for a while and reconnect.
