H22a4 Head Swap problems

I just did a head swap for my prelude, and it cranks, but wont start. when i crank it, i smell gas and i hear what it sounds to be like an air leak coming from the intake manifold. does anyone have any ideas about what it could be? thanks

Sounds like your intake valves might be bent or something.
