Did I kill my 97?

Owner of a 97 Boxster-had it for 2 years, less than 80k, only put about 4000 on it in two years. CEL came on, P1088 code. Set about cleaning the MAF sensor, pretty much by the book- not too hard. No obvious sings for dirt or malfunction.

Stuck it back together and let it sit over night-

Cranked it this morning and it was hard start, stalled several times then caught but seemed a bit rough art idle. Took it for a test drive and 1/4 mile in, stalled. RE-start, another 1/4 mile or so, same thing. Re-start, ran ok until I took the corner to my driveway-stalled again. Let it sit 3-4 hours.

Tried again, started hard, stalled, repeat-finally running, basically same as earlier-drive a bit, stalls-drive a bit stalls-kind of dangerous. CEL came on P0102 this time-but oddly with the CEL lit, seemed a bit more responsive.

Reset the light-basically did the same as before-start, stall, repeat.

Probably take it apart tomorrow make sure I didn't miss something on reassembly but I doubt it. Suggestions?
