10k resistor mod damage?

I tried the 10k resistor mod. It truly made a significant difference in throttle response. Very touchy and jumpy off of idle. I really liked it, until I realized that my fuel mileage went to crap!
I pulled the resistor and everything was back to normal... UNTIL my drive home from work today. The truck started losing power at highway speed. Finally it just shut down. I pulled over, fired it back up, drove off, and it shut down again. Sounds like the Cam Sensor right? I thought the same thing. I let it sit for a few minutes, then fired it back up and drove it home with no problems or symptoms. Checked the codes in my HyperPac. P1210, P1211. ICP codes. Could the resistor mod have fawked up my ICP sensor?

Do you get an SES light?

Is there any oil in the sensor?

I did the same thing. I bought the resister and everything was great for awhile. Then one day it just stops running so i freaked and took the resistor out. My truck would run for 5-10 minutes, die sit for 5-10 minutes, start and run awhile, and then do it all over again. I took it to the shop they said cam sensor and changed it. Ran like a champ. Thats what happened to me i dont know if its the same as your problem but i hope you get it figured out.

SES light came on, but in an effort to get the truck safely off the highway, I cleared the codes with the HyperPac while driving to try to reset it and keep it running. Light did not come on the 2nd time it shut down, or the rest of the way home. The P1210, 1211 codes did not throw the light. So I'm guessing I cleared the code that actually shut the truck down.
I will check the sensor for oil tomorrow. What would that mean?
