New Cat, Won't Turn over

Hey, question someone might have a simple answer to.

The heat shield on my 94 2.3L XLT's cat was becoming loose so I just decided to get a direct fit magna flow one to replace it. Drove home, put in the new one, car won't fire. It cranks like it wants to but won't actually start.

My cat has no O2 sensor or anything on it. Just 4 bolts and a hanger. I didn't see any plugs anywhere in the pipes, and the cat only fits one way. Any thoughts? CPU not reading the proper airflow???? No clue and I just want it to start!

Forget it, lol. It was just the fuel pump switch. Reset it and started it up without any pipes on. Scared the $hit out of me it was so loud.
