You actually Do have a relay, it's just not the big kind you're looking for on the pass inner fender. Look at your Owners Manual, I believe it's in the fusebox.
But, that being said, it doesn't sound like the relay would be the most likely culprit if it didn't do it with the old starter. First I'd eliminate the possibility it actually was the new starter by taking it back out, and connecting it with some jumper cables to the Batt (+) terminal and ground one of the ears.
If it doesn't spin, dbl ck the wires you connected to the small terminal.
I guess it could be the Key sw or the relay, but again, what's changed? Not either of those....
