To check if it's your main relay, turn the key to run (don't crank it) and you should hear the fuel pump prime for about 2-3 secs then a 'clunk' noise from where the relay is. If it does that, your relay is fine. If not, look for a new relay.

I'm having the same problem. The plugs, distributor, and wires are all new (11 months old). I tries the main relay, but that didn't fix it. The fuel pump and filter are fine and the injectors seem to be working fine (misty-spray while cranking). Now i'm going to pull out my icm and have it tested. What else could it be?
