Changing your air inlet system,would not have any effect on your starter cranking circuit. Now, if you had disconnected the MAF/IAT sensor connector (for whatever purpose) making the changeover, it would sure cause a problem *if* the engine had started. But I'm sure that would have also caused the MIL icon to illuminate. If your battery is found to *not* be the problem, you could do this (to eliminate your starter) if you are going to due any of the T/S. With the ignition OFF, remove the R12 crank relay (located in the underhood fuse box) an fashion up a jump wire. After verifying the location of base pin sockets 30 an 87, jump across those 2 positions. If you feel that the starter is OK, it will now crank the engine until you remove the jump wire.
