Default not turnin over

so i just bought a 95 civic hatch and the head was blown, but i had another motor from the guy, the swap is all donw everything is connected but when i try and start the car it barely turns over, and when it finaly tries, it sounds like the motor is about to blow up, and i have flames coming out of my intake box, not the intake manifold or anything, but where the airfilter sits, and the motor smokes, nothing comes out the exhaust, and i keep smellin gas , i have no idea what else to check, i have checked the timing, the sparks,

somebody help me[:@]

You probably have the spark plug wires on the wrong places, or the timing belt badly mistimed.
