Did you disconnect the battery when you swapped out the computers? If not there could be a possibility it fried.

It's certainly a possibility. The ecu's of any car are somewhat fragile to electro static discharge and if not protected from it (by disconnecting the battery) it has potential to ruin it. Happened on a 300zx I had.

It depends how good you are with electronics. I have worked on computers for years now and for me to crack an ecu open would be no problem. However I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that has never worked on them before.

I would honestly take it to a reputable mechanic or, if any are willing around your area, see about switching the ecu with a known good one. But make sure the battery is unhooked or it could fry their computer.

The pump not priming was the same exact issue I had with my 300zx. The pump runs off of the computer.
