Default Engine Check Light

I just installed a K&N intake on my truck and when i started it up the check engine light came on. Do i have to wait for the trucks engine to re-cycle and get used to the new air flow or what?

The truck is breathing to good. Put on the stock filter. You don't want to run it lean.

I figured out it was the air temp. guage because i turned it on without the guage in. So i plugged in the computer and just reset it and figured if something is really wrong it will turn back on when driving/running
