How did you deal with the transponder in the Zetec donors keys? Won't start without the transponder within 6" or so of the ignition tumbler.

The two things that first come to mind considering the swap-do you still have the transponder in the SPI key? Two transponder chips in close proximity can cause issues.
Second, go back and re-check your grounds esp. the one from the battery to body.

You need the matching key for the dohc computer. Or have your computer programmed for the key.
