Default HELP. ME.

When I was wiring my car for subs I hit some wires and when I drove it home and then back it started to idle real high! Around 2300 rpm. I shut it off then started it again. It barely started.

All I know so far is that it runs real rich, the smell of gas is insane. Idle's funny. Every time I step on the gas it dies. I checked my fuel pressure and its all good. When I had to drive my car home I had to be really slow lettin of the clutch or it would die. Shifting from first to second, there would be no power. What so ever. Then all of a sudden it would take off? I really need some help. I want my baby back :/
Thank you

I don't really know. Lol. There is just a group of wires that go threw the fire wall to the inside of my car.

were you running a hot wire thru the firewall without disconnecting the battery first? depends on where/what you hit.
