I had a non start on an MPI after a restoration and it turned out to be the wiring plugs on the ecu.

Unplugged them, plugged them back in and hey presto.

I'd love to see the big smile on your face when it finally fires  :D

 

edited to add: is it new fuel?  I've a car which has sat a long time and have read a lot about fuel going off in quite a short period of time...    ...though one would have thought it'd still cough or try and run!

Are your injectors firing ? (the power to them can be checked with an LED)

 

Have you tried spraying easy start into the throttle body ?
