Do you think the GTi ECU could give an error code 34 - MAF sensor, if the TPS is not calibrated?

No, MAF cpde will not trigger if TPS is out of calibration.

Thanks to all. Will keep looking into it.

Was working on one of my GTi and it doesn’t want to start.
Code was 34. That’s maf sensor. So I changed the maf sensor for the one I’m using on the turboed gti, and I know it works because that car starts up everytime and everything is fine. Still got the code 34. It was getting late so stopped messing with the car. I put a cloth inside the maf sensor to prevent animals from getting in.
Today I tried again. I made sure the fuel pump is working. I have an inline external Walbro fuel pump. And tried to start again. Now it gave code 33, which is also maf sensor. But I forgot to remove the cloth from the mas sensor.
I also tested the “bad” maf on my turboed gti and it works fine. No error code nothing. So it could be a problem in the engine harness itself.
Meanwhile I double checked the cam timing, and to me, the intake cam was 1 tooth off. So I was busy today correcting that and didn’t try starting the car anymore. It was getting late and I’ll continue tomorrow.

Also changed coolant temp sensor for a brand new one.
Bought new spark plugs today (NGK).
Injectors were cleaned a few months ago and flow tested.
