Dumb Brown Wire Question

2001 with cat code plug. Removed plug tonight after I cut the brown wire to it last week. Had intermittent hesitation earlier today. (92 degrees F)
Have not ridden with current setup.
Also, did a TPS reset tonight.
If she still hesitates tomorrow, should I resplice brown wire, reinstall plug, and just disconnect air box temp sensor? (John said "Don't do both")
