    Have you checked everything on air delivery? I mean, you know the engine is firing and delivering fuel. What else could be left? Might check the IAC (or FIV). That can sometimes kill a car.

    you said you have compression, you have spark, and when you are spraying starting fluid in the intake the car runs until you run out of starting fluid. so the problem is with the fuel you said that you have adequate fuel pressure right??? if thats the case the fuel pump and all electrical wiring to the pump is good. so forget about everything from the place where you took the fuel preassure readings and back and concentrate from there forward. you also said you physicaly saw the injectors spraying fuel. so make an educated guess and decide if the amount of fuel you saw beign sprayed was enough to run your motor. if it is then put the car back toghether and crank it over for about 5-6sec. then pull a spark plug and smell it if it smells like fuel and it's pitch black the spark plugs aren't burning the fuel if it is greyish(carbon build up) then your plugs arent fireing on the compression stroke.

    post your results and we can go from there.

    Reading all your posts, so you said the tech hooked up a noid light and it was flashing on only one injector and the others stayed lit? if thats the case then your not getting pulse widths to the injectors therefor those injectors are not firing.

    Check your injector wiring, that would be odd to have 3 injectors take a crap all at once, even if one wasn't working then it would still run, but it would sound like a tractor.
    My bet is your injector wiring.
