    Have the basics checked before swaping parts. Fuel pressure, ignition fire, injector pulse and compression! VATS also. Computer is the least likely suspect for a no start condition, possible but not likely!

    i have checked fuel pressure,45 psi, changed crank poss. sensor, changed ign module and coil pack. it is getting good spark from plug wires. tps checks good. it is not getting correct voltage to injectors. (I think.)
    shows 10 volts to injector when cranking if you check the injector wire. cannot get to the injector plug at injector to use a noid light without pulling the intake manifold. the security has been bypassed with a pro bypass module. so ecu is next in line. any info will be appreciatesd.
