I took out the air pump an I haven't had it tuned so I was wondering if it will be ok to drive? Or will it shut down?

It is illegal to disable the airpump on the car. You will have NO performance increase by removing the pump! It will run fine but you will ultimatley ruin your catilitic converters. By the way they only run during idle conditions and never under engine load.
