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

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.
