Check to make sure the fuel pressure is within spec. Also, check to make sure the regulator is working properly. If that is all good, check to make sure the injectors are getting power.

Did you use a torque wrench that is in calibration and use the corect tighteningpattern and torque for it. It may have a bad vacuum leak. You can check for a leak with a piece of sewing thread by dragging along mated surfaces until it gets sucked in towards leak.
