Default Can't get B16 started

So I just installed a skunk2 intake manifold on a guys B16, and I can't get the damn thing to start. The car ran fine before it was parked last week, so I'm stumped. I am getting fuel to the fuel rail, I have spark, timing is good, I'm using the injectors that were in the car when it was running. I have even changed injectors, fuel rails, checked the main relay and fuel pump. I have checked all the ground wires, including the one on the thermostat housing. I have even switched ecu's. Anyone have any ideas?

I checked the tps and map wires and I have them correct. I also used a new intake manifold gasket as well.
