Unhappy EJ207 swap crank, no start

Hey guys I'm having the worst time ever trying to get my swapped EJ207 to start up. I've searched and searched for days and I still can't get it going. It cranks but doesn't fire up. This is a v7 STi motor into a 2003 bugeye and is supposed to be the easiest swap ever, which is one of the reasons I decided to go this route. Anyway, here's what I've tried so far:

1) I have tried to use both the EJ207 and EJ205 computers with the same crank, no start results.

2) I tried spraying some carb cleaner into the throttle body to see if I have spark. (Crank, no start, which means I don't have spark)

3) Swapped coil packs with my old engine. (crank, no start)

4) I have checked my wiring, as many connectors as I can see, and now I'm just staring at the damn thing.

I transferred a few mods from my old engine, but I don't think that they would have any impact on the engine starting.

Mods are:
fmic, uppipe, TBE, header, cold air intake, underdrive pulley, vf22, turbo inlet, brand new ebcs (upgrade from mbc)

If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate the assistance. Thanks for reading!

I am running the NGK BKR7EIX # 2667 plugs

I'm thinking that my fuel pressure is normal. I had a line squirting gas the first time I cranked it.

I don't know how to tell if I'm getting injector pulse. How can you test this?

I don't think I'm getting any spark. I tried carb cleaner in the throttle body and it didn't even fire up at all.

Does anyone use romraider to log? If so, I would like to see if you can make a log of your car's start up so I can see what a good one looks like. Thanks in advance, I just checked my timing and everything lines up how it should. I'm really confused at why I'm not able to start my car.

Didn't want to leave this thread unsolved. So before I even started working on the car I had it taken to a reputable shop to replace the timing belt and some other small things. The problem ended up being that one of my intake cams had been positioned incorrectly, so once I fixed that it fired up immediately. Fortunately I didn't do anything wrong (I was worried about messing up since this is my first swap). Anyway, good luck to you guys with any projects and always double check the work if you have someone else do anything to your car.
