Have you checked for spark? A lot of people mix up the crank and cam sensor connectors when doing a swap. Ive done it. Pull a plug and rest it on the valve cover with the plug wire attached. See if you get spark. And the spark should be bright BLUE, anything else is a weak spark, which might keep the car from starting.

That's the reason my car is not starting I have no spark that's y I tried like 4 different distributors and 4 different ecu all were pr4 and 1 was p28 I get crank in the motor but no spark wat so ever I tryed almost everything I kno the motor that was in there was a zc I took it out carefully it sat for about a year till I finished building the b18 then I put in the b18 conect the wires and I come to c I have no spark I really need some help
