2003 SPI problem

OK so my SPI blew up as usual. I found a rebuilt 2.0 SPI in a 2001. Heard it run. Installed it into my 2003. Engine cranks but will not start. I can hear the fuel pump start up. Everything hooked up. Fuel pu,p inertia switch not tripped. Any thoughts? Only thing i did was had to wire directly the crank position sensor without the connector because it broke during removal/installation. Thoughts?

Did you hook up the brown yellow ground on the right side of battery?

would the crank position sensor wiring, if it isnt perfect, cause a no-start condition? Wondering if I need to re-visit that...I used one of those dual female middle crimp jobs on each wire.......to connect them.
