While driving down the road, engine died and now will not start. Engine cranks over fine, checked for jumped time (all ok), has spark, fuel pump seems to be running. Even poured fuel in throttle body, still will not start.

Sorry for the late reply.

If you have the spider fuel system, that fuel system is noted for problems. Start-up fuel pressure is critical, around 60--66 psi. After you get it running, it will run with less pressure. Also, the fuel poppet valves are noted for sticking. The cleaning procedure I've seen for the fuel poppet valves is a shop procedure. I'd definitely check fuel pressure.
