confused Starter prob..

I swapped engine over from a EA to a EA S-Pack.
Kept original wiring and coil of the S-Pack, now i tried to start it and started cranking then lost all power, so i went to the battery and cleaned all terminals and re-tightened them. Went back in car and had power back, i started cranking it over and it stopped, key refused to turn it over, so i thought i would check all fuses and replaced relays, nothing, im getting power to dizzy and coil but nothing at starter motor, i can add power to starter and will crank over.. Even tried with fully charged battery.
I didnt think the computer would be the prob, but i swapped it over anyway and still doesnt work..
Anyone any suggestions to where the prob is and where to look?
Im goin to check the ignition switch itself after a coffee..
Im getting a little frustrated with this lol

I suggest checking the grounds, specially the one from the block to the chassis/body. Also check the battery terminals and their connection to the main cables.

Hope this helps.
