ok so i just swapped a blown up D16z6 for a jdm D15b today was the first time i tried to start it and it cranks and cranks but no start. when i did the swap i added an oil pressure guage that took the place of the stock oil pressure sender. i also added a coolant temp guage where the coolant drain plug used to be those are the only things about the motor that are not stock, the timing belt does spin, the battery is full and the starter cranks. any ideas guys. i might just be over looking somthing simple so any comments are great.

thanks guys

Yeah sleep is probably right, the grounds, cause I never knew till he told me that if they aren't on the engine won't roll, so yeah thats probably what it is, always seems to be the stupid shit.

Just a thought. Did you time the motor or did you just throw it in there and try to crank it?
