When bleeding injectors at head, was fuel squiring or just dribbling? Engine kills with key, so it has a fuel shutoff solenoid, this solenoid may not be opening the fuel to the injectors. Locate the fuel solenoid and see if it is getting battery voltage when key is turned on. If it has voltage , and does not open fuel solenoid is bad.
