After supercharger install car will not start

So I brought my 05 Elise in to install an m62 supercharger. It ran flawlessly prior to bringing it in. Now the car just pops and backfires as long as ignition is held and won't start according to mechanic who I am flatbedding it out from on Monday as he is useless in assisting further in this matter. Parts installed were the sc a BOE tq 250 tune and larger injectors and the peripheral stuff spark plugs belt etc. mechanic thinks ecu issue boe says not a chance and a bmw mechanic thinks it could be an anti theft issue with tuning the ecu although I have later heard here that the alarm and ecu have no correlation and another buddy thinks vacuum issue. I have yet to physically get my hands on it but I don't know what to think or where to start when I do. My instincts say it's not getting any spark as popping (which I have to hear for myself) indicates that it is getting fuel. It's possibly a vacuum issue. Also sensors all need to be checked but I didn't take it apart or put it back together so I have no idea what was touched or moved in the process. Any help in this matter would be greatly greatly appreciate. Thanks in advance,
