Are you sure you don't have anything unplugged or tightened? Do you have spark? Does you have fuel pressure?

ether

j/k, since you swapped it you should retrace everything vital to starting, that simple. Asking what is wrong after stating you just did a swap is scary, I mean you just did a swap yourself but don't know how to solve this...yikes.

Youre probably right someone else did it while he watched then they walked away when it didn't start and he was left with it

And if that is the case, he has crap friends, the post reads as if he did it himself. If he paid someone (garage) he wouldn't be asking this question.

I would gladly help if I could but there are so many possibilities it is pointless. Maybe he plugged a wrong sensor in somewhere, maybe a little ether would help, maybe he didnt do this or that, very broad question he has asked.

Good to hear, fuel lines crossed is not that uncommon so don't need to beat yourself up over that at all.
