Miles service due in dropping fast after downpipes

I installed a set of AA DPs and my dash had 16000 on it when I started up showing me that was how many miles I had until my next oil change/service. Since then I've probably driven.. 80 miles tops. My dash is now displaying 3700 miles until oil change/service. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Just for a little background, while doing the DP install we positioned one of the V-clamps so that it's jammed up against the waste gate arm, so I've got rattle. I also am suffering from power loss and if I step on the gas hard it will go into limp mode. I'm hoping that the not fully closed V-clamp and it pressing on the waste gate arm are my sole issues.

Would any of these affect the service clock?

Thanks for any help.

Why not just reset the service oil light via the BC and see what happens. ?

Maybe you are due for an oil change bc of time not miles?

I just reset it to 16000 when I had the oil changed like a week prior to installing the downpipes...
