after picking it up at the body shop(had to take trailer, they couldn't get it to start either) it is getting fuel to the rail and to the regulator, but not to the pressure port. and it will not start. i'm still figuring out f/i and this is kicking my butt! :headscratch:

Check for power to the injectors. That would narrow it down to either electrical or mechanical.

i just had this happen to my 5.0L. take the EEC test port and push a piece of wire into the white wire with a green stripe on it and touch it to any ground you should hear the injectors firing. if so bolt it to a ground and try to start the car. mine works fine now but i had to run that ground to a toggle switch on the dash so now i have to flick the switch everytime i want to drive it but hey it works...probably something wrong with the relay from the computer....its just a way to by-pass it.

Think about whats going on here. Fuel to the regulator, but no fuel to the injectors. There is a blockage somewhere.
