I would start with fuel pressure. Hook a guage to the fuel rail and see if you are getting 42PSI or better.

Spark and fuel are two main things to check.
BTW, Johnny Mullet, I like the 'user title'

an engine only needs 3 things to run - fuel/air, spark, and compression. theres not any reason you should have lost compression so hook a spark tester up and if you have spark then the fuel is your problem, and if you dont have spark, then there it is.
