Sounds like the timing is off.

If it doesn't even sound like it wants to fire up then check that a plug has not been removed or come off on the cam sensors and or crank sensor. It if wants to start but struggles and doesn't it is possible that the cam timing might be out. Check the timing marks first. If they line up then check to see if piston one is physically on top dead centre through the plug hole. Check that when at TDC both intake and exhaust valves must be closed. I have come across timing marks that were out from the factory... Hope this helps.
