bad icp sensor?

well i think my icp sensor took a crap finally i priced one out at the local ford dealer it was 144 dollars and thats with a slight discount i want to make sure its the icp sensor that makes my truck run like crap before i drop that kind of money. first off i didnt have any problem with until i installed a 10k a while back the truck ran fine with it in but when i took it out thats when the problems started. the truck idles iradiclley and some times when im drive down the road the truck will stall out but when you go to start it it cranks right back up like nothin is wrong. i have no check engine lights the only time it comes on is if i really get on it i have a boost regulator that is properly adjusted so its not from over boosting. so i just unplugged the sensor for now to get by now i have a constant check engine light and my truck lacks some seriuos power can anybody help me i dont want to waste money if i dont have to thanks

i was kind of thinking that because the plug did feel kind of loose but i was also thinking that if the plug was loose and not making contact wouldnt it run the same as if it was unplugged just asking i dont know im willing to try anything to save a 144 bucks
