Does it turn over? Is everything connected properly? Need more detail.

I would say you have either missed something plugging it all together or maybe a fuse has blown. Double check EVERYTHING.

Could of just missed something like an earth or connected the leads up wrong on the dizzy (I'm assuming the VL's have a Dizzy?)

it turns over but wont start and i think the ecu is giving me false codes here are the codes its showing. 11, 12, 14, 21, 23, 24, 31, 32,

but i know theres nothing wrong with the starter motor or air flow meter because they are both brand new

it is bound to be a minor oversight E.G some connection somewhere as has been suggested above.
the motor swap was auto to auto, manual to auto or vise versa? it maybe a wire loom or neutral safety switch problem.
