Pull the distributer cap is the rotor turning when your cranking it. If no you will need to replace the timing chain.

Do the enjectors fire when you crank the motor. Possable blown injecter fuse or bad injecter.

Injectors are brand new and the fuses were the first thing I checked

Do you have spark for sure?Those coils just go.1 will be bad and 1 will be good and the engine will try and start but wont. The timing chain may be bad you will have to remove a valve cover and check to see if the valve train is working.
