Default Swaped b18b1 into ek does not start

I have a 96 ek civic I bought a running Acura from a friend of mine it ran perfect before I started to take it apart anyways it sat around for about 1 month while I got parts for the swap and the engine once it came time to swap my engine I did everything correct I think I used the civic wiring harness and the Acura ECU everything plugged in fine I had a mechanic check it where I work he said everything seemed fine but now it does not start the timing belt is good and TDC is right we did a compression test and they all came out to have 0 compression the engine seems to have spark and also fuel going into it what could it be that itís not starting

With zero compression in all four cylinders... you are either out of mechanical time, you have a really tight valve adjustment or the engine is crap.
