It's either fuel or sparks. Hard to say anything without knowing more about it. Hence the lack of replies. I'd guess it's run out of fuel or there's a fuel pump not running that's supposed to if it's a new motor to you.
Check for spark and check for pressure in the fuel rail and get back to us.

Welcome to the forum by the way!

When you say it fires but does not run do you mean that it just won't tick over or rev but does fire up and die instantly ?
