is the fuel filter installed correctly?

Barring that, you may want to disconnect the gas tank and drain it (some actually have drain plugs in the bottom of the tank so you don't have to drop the tank) and then put fresh gas in. Have you checked the fuel pump and fuel pump relay? What about the fuel pressure regulator/fuel pressure to the injectors? Need to check those as well...
