Customer Question

i recently did an engine swap on my 2000 toyota celica gt, everything was going smooth till i went to start it, it would just crank over, i tested for spark and thats working, i spray ether in it and the car will start and stay running until i turn it off. I replaced the fuel pump and strainer, tested the relays and fuses. The only code it throws is a p0100 which is bad maf sensor.
