Default Engine swap, crank no start

V7 JDM WRX (manual) EJ205 motor was swapped with a junkyard motor (ej205) w/automatic transmission.

What are some common issues I can look for if it cranks but doesn't start? I know it's general and seems stupid but really looking for help on this.

Fuel pump primes, fuses are all good, I'm GOING to check timing, spark plugs are good, fuel lines are correct, I have not checked compression. It sounds healthy when it cranks.. From what I can tell every sensor is connected.

Any ideas is appreciated! Thanks

Check for both cam and crank position sensor plugs are plugged in...also coolant temp sensor and oil pressure sensor light. First 2 are super important and will cause a no start issue. The latter 2 are also commonly missed when doing motor swaps. Just not sure if theyd cause a no start issue.

Cheers. Thanks, I'll look at those. I think the crank sprocket is entirely different because the donor car was an automatic and the ecus are different.
