Just have so start diagnosing it. First if the check engine light is on get the codes read. Next is to make sure you have spark. Then you will have to check the fuel pressure. It should be 56 to 63 lbs. You have changed everything to make it run, should snug up the intake bolts to 17 ft. lbs. the torque spec. is 12 ft. lbs. and make sure everything is plugged back in, double check all the sensor connections. For shits and grins try spraying just a little starting fluid in to see if it starts. If it does then there may be a fuel issue yet.
