test at the fuel pump, plenty of power to drive that~ the tank has a ground strap too, make sure it's attached~ test with a multimeter, suspect a bad ground or insufficient ground is at play here~

I’m having the same issue, turning over but no fuel at injectors. Pump is good too. Put gas in the barrels and it starts briefly
