Have you checked for spark? Remove a spark plug wire and crank the engine to check for spark. What was the fuel pressure reading?

It would be best to check for fuel pressure with a gauge if there is not enough fuel pressure, the engine will not run. Here is the fuel pressure specification:

Fuel System Pressure
Key On Engine Off 55-62 psi


Let me know what you find. I'll check back in tomorrow morning.
