Why did you replace the ECM?

You need to figure out what is missing:

What is the fuel pressure reading using a fuel pressure test gauge

Is there a spark on the coil output wire? Is there spark at the plugs?

Do you have injector pulse?

Does the check engine light come on when you turn the ignition on? If so, are there any trouble codes stored?

Do you have a volt meter?

It turnns over. No juice to the fuel pump.
The 'check engine' light doesn't come on.
Don't have a volt meter.

The check engine light not coming on when you turn the ignition on probably means the ECM isn't powered up. One thing the ECM does is turn on the ASD relay to supply power to the fuel injectors, ignition coil, fuel pump relay, etc.

You'll need to test for power and grounds to the ECM with a volt meter. The ECM will also shut down if the power supply circuits for various sensors is shorted to ground.
