if you have an injection pulse then the ECU has power and then I'd say it must be a fault with the coil earth connection this should be a seperate small earth wire that runs out of the engine wiring loom and is secured to the engne with a ring terminal and a small bolt

also check teh state of the main earth connection between the block and the chassis / battery earth
