Dumb move, help! lmao

ok so was wanting to wast some time and went to radio shack and got a couple resistors.... 10K 5.6K 3.9K 1.5K started with the 10K and put in the ICP sensor you know. well it was cool, so then 5.6K...3.9K....and finally 1.5K. i should have stopped at 3.9K but i didnt. as you would expect it loped and had a good amount of power with the 1.5K but i dint leave it in for more that 5 min. just went up the road and back. just wanted to see what it would do. so i take it out, plug the harness back in the ICP without a resistor and went to start the truck....aggg it too about 3 seconds to fire and then spit a little around 500-600rpms. then died. the truck will not start and run unless i give it a lot of fuel wile starting. just fires and dies. it will do this after i get the truck running and then shut it off. i went to wal mart and its still doing this when i start it.....what did i do? it run same as it always did when i get it running???
