Default D16Z6 Swap Wont Start

Put a D16Z6 into a 92 Civic DX Hatchback D15B7 stock engine. Auto tranny. Engine cranks but wont start. Checked the timing belt. Checked for spark by grounding spark plug to valve cover. Fuel is getting to spark plugs. Replaced Main Relay. Still no start. Anyways heres a video of me trying to start it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

timing man sounds like your a tooth or two off. id try moving it a tooth to both sides see if it helps.

I'm not a good trouble shooter but check all your grounds

-Radiator Support to Valve Cover
-Frame to Tranny
-And Thermostat Housing ground(exspecially this one, I didn't tighten it one time and it made my dash lights do crazy things and it wouldn't start)
