    Timing: is it 100% absolutely correct?

    Fuel: do you have fuel to the injectors?

    Spark: do you have spark to the plugs?

    Also, make sure all of the sensors are checked. Sometimes even one plug left unplugged can cause the car to not start.

    i've seen a lot of people mix up the fuel line and fuel return line which obviously causes a no start, verify that the fuel hose coming from the center of the fuel filter goes to the top of the three connections at the fuel rail
