Default Odor after TB and CAI install

Hello everyone. I just installed a BBK throttle body and cold air intake on my 2004 V6 and have quite a bad smell coming from the engine bay. The vacuum tube going from the upper intake pipe to the manifold came loose but I am not sure such a scent would come from that. I am not too familiar with these sort of things so I was wondering if anyone might have some ideas as to what may have happened. Thank you all for your time!
