Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Since you have good fuel pressure and spark that leaves checking the injector pulse and compression. Have you or can you check those? This will tell me how to help you diagnose why either of those is not good.
