diagnosed and replaced the maf sensor and crank

replaced it started. It runs badly and sputters and
backfires when reved. It has barely any power and
once it hits about 3k rpm it looses all power and
sputters and backfires. Help....

Do a tune up. Fix all the possibility s first. If it still acts up,, it maybe the throttle body sensor and or power transfer unit which is under the coils I had to replace those and mine worked fine. But this doesn't mean mine symptoms are yours. But it's a start ...hope this helps
