Are there any trouble codes?

When it failed to restart, what is missing? Ignition sparks, fuel injectors not pulsing, fuel pump not working?

No codes have fuel pressure and spark. This is a good one. I do question the fuel volume though. But I cant figure out what stops the fuel pressure is good

Are the injectors pulsing?
Does starting fluid works?

Yes starting fluid will keep it running when in this state. I will go recheck pulse @ injectors.

If starting fluid works and you have fuel pressure, the fuel injectors are not pulsing.

It could be the PCM or cam sensor has a fault.

Nope got pulse and pressure just warmed it up now it is in the not run state. Or should I say starts makes a few revolutions but rough ones almost like its way to fat.
