I don't think it would have caused any real damage, if that's what you're asking.

Glad you got it fixed.
I did have it installed in that condition (put together the best I could) for about a week. No ses light, no issue with the brakes. I however was told to look for a intake leak for a cause of my smokey starts with a new ccv. I'll report back if this fixed it, because it'd definitely be an intake leak.
