High idle after putting tuner on

I just helped a friend install the AFE delete pipes and an MBRP dpf back system on his truck. We also installed an SCT Livewire Extreme. Now the truck idles at 1000 rpm. He had the tuner on before we installed the delete pipes and it ran just fine. The only thing we changed was we told the tuner the dpf was deleted. It also has the wrench light on.

Sorry for the long post. Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the help. I started wondering today if that was the problem. We didn't install all of the sensors because the brass part of the pressure sensor stripped out while removing it. He's gonna go to the dealership and get a new one.
