    Could be a numer of things. Have you checked the compression? Running it on the proper ECU? Everything wired correctly? These motors are different OBDs, which I am sure you know already if it is even running.

    All four cylinders are firing, no missing, smoke, CELs? Any other clues?

    As a general rule of thumb, always use the ecu that comes with the corresponding engine from the factory.

    PGMFI.org has info you may want to read about compatibility, as some ecus will run multiple motors fine.
