Yes the fuel pressure seems good, and you have spark at all the cylinders. Try spraying some starting fluid into the throttle body to see if it fires off. If it does, then it is not getting fuel and that would need to be figured out.


I will try that my next step was to pull injectors and ck fuel rail real good for any problems


I even disconnected return line and that was fine but I don't understand why I don't smell fuel and plugs stay dry will let you know what I find
