Question: what did i do wrong?

just did a tune up and now the engine is running even more rough and sputtering when I push the gas. white smoke comes out of the exhaust and the exhaust pipe below the catalytic converter is getting red glowing hot. i did have to replace egr pressure sensor as it broke in the process.
