Well first off, you MUST use a torque wrench. It's very easy to distort the valve body if the screws are not torqued correctly.

The PCM is probably shot. 99% of the time if it continues to throw a fault code that leads to the PCM then it's the PCM. I had this happen when mine was still under factory warranty.
