engine controls are likely different... Make sure that you retain all old stuff and know where it hooks up. It's easier to change any different sensors etc before you install into vehicle. make sure that accessories on front of engine are the same, and that exhaust exit on pipe is located in the same place. Exhaust manifolds like to crack where pipes are joined together. make sure they are OK before using manifold. Base engine assembly is identical so there shouldn't be any major problems. If new engine has over 150k on it, you may want to change timing chain before using it. (its not mandatory, but you would be surpriseed how many engines, I've seen with fairly worn out chains at that mileage)

Here are a couple of things that could be causing your problem. 1. Bad ignition coil or ignition module 2. Clogged fuel filter 3. Clogged air filter 4. Clogged fuel injectors 5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor. 6. Broken timing chain/belt. Here are a few things you can try to verify that you have a good spark. 1. Remove the distributor cap and crank the car. If the rotor turned you're ok. If it doesn't turn then that's you're problem and you will probably need to change a timing belt/chain. 2. Check the spark from the ignition coil by pulling the coil wire from the center of the distributor. Use an alligator clip to attach a short wire to the coil wire contact. Bare the other end of this short wire and set it up so it's sitting very close to the engine block. Turn off the lights and try to start the car. You should see a spark jump from this wire to the block. If you don't see a spark it's likely your ignition module or ignition coil is bad. 3. If you have a spark maybe it's not getting to the plugs. You may need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. You can test if the plugs are sparking by pulling one, re-attaching the spark plug wire and seeing if you get a spark when you try to start the engine in the dark. Please note, the metal threads of the spark plug need to be shorted to the engine block to complete the circuit during this test.
