Check the wiring between the coils and the ECU, if a car has been sitting that long there may have been some damage to the wiring caused by the local wildlife sinking their teeth, or you may have inadvertently damaged a connector.

Get some engine starter fluid in a can and spray all the hoses and base of your throttle body it sounds like a leak!!
