Default New gaskets and head won't start

I have basically rebuilt the engine. It's got new chain, timing belt,complete gaskets from oil pan up. The thang just won't start. It is in time. Have changed can sensor,crank sensor, has new computer. Any suggestions I may have missed. Have plenty of fuel pressure at the rail.

I would stop throwing parts at it and perform some basic tests. Compression test, leak down test, check for spark and make sure the injectors are firing. Do all those tests and come back to the forum with your findings. We can offer some suggestions with your feedback.

Did you everything pulled to do all your work? Sometimes the cam sensor connector and the coil pack connector (which look the same) can be interchanged and put back on the wrong place.
