95 Impreza 1.8 won't start

I picked up a 95 Impreza that wasn't running I was told that it died on the highway it seemed like a simple fuel pump so I bought it. But the fuel pump is good so I check spark got spark. So I put some gas in the throttle body fires right up the dies. I put in a new crank and cam position sensors in the car still won't start but now it at least fires but then promptly dies if you touch the gas. I've tried the self diagnostic got a mass air code. I cleaned the mass air with some mass air cleaner. Same results.
So will a mass air make it so it won't start at all? And do you have any suggestions to try?
Thank you for your time

replace the Mass Air Flow sensor with a brand new one. It tells the ecu how much air to mix with the fuel.
