Default 1998 honda civic lx 5sspd not starting?

I recently bought this civic, it wasnt getting any spark, so i replaced the distributor, still wasnt getting any spark then i noticed that the fuel pump wasnt turning on,

I checked the ground for the ecu on the thermastat and it was secure,

The engine is a d16y7, and it had a p2e ecu, i bought a replacement ecu which is a p2p ecu off of 98' EX

after i installed it, still no spark or fuel,

So i have a few questions

first, is a p2p ecu compatible with my car which is all stock,

Second, if it is compatible, why else wouldnt it start,

Third, does the ecu controll the distributor and fuel pump,

I really cant figure this out abd would appriciate any detailed info from someone who knows these cars and this particular problem

Ok, first swapping computers is fine but i would make sure they are the same, If its not the car can think its been stolen and lock you out. also if you want to know for sure if its the pcm or computer buy a set of (noids) and test the signal going to the injectors, if you do not have any then the computer is most likely not working, or see if a scanner will talk to the car if you able to get a hold of one.
