Default engine swap

i am need of some assistance so I come to you guys first.

now my problem:
I just finished my engine swap of a 2002 pt cruiser to a 2003 pt gt engine. I used the stock harness because computer change from 2002 to 2003. I have an apexi safcII for the fuel adding when I boost. Now the engine is hooked up with trans and mounted. Me and my friends did a test run finally today and it turns over but won't actually run. it just keeps turning over until the batter is dead.

We had to lengthen some of the engine harness because the intake manifold is diff on the gt so therefore made us come up short else were. the reason for it start would be our wiring? one thing we did notice is that the crank position sensor is on the front side of the motor on the gt and on the backside of the motor on the n/a. does that make a difference too?

Me and my friends are stumped!!!!
