Turns over but no fire

I have an issue, hoping some of you experts out there can help me. I pulled in to a gas station to get a drink on the way into work and when i came back out my truck wouldnt start. It was up to temp and would turn over but would not fire. It sat for about 12 hours, went to start it and it fired right up. Drove home, 20 miles, shut the truck off and tried to restart but wouldn't fire. I thought it might be the HPOP or a STC fitting but after 24 more hours of sitting it still wouldnt fire. My shop checked the FICM and it passed the volt test and buzz test, think they already ruled out the cranks shaft positioner. The cab was off the truck a couple of months ago to put on new heads and a rear cover plate. It has a rebuilt swamps 58V FICM,an EGR delete kit, ARP head studs and a 4 in turbo back exhaust. What could it be? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Adam

Stand pipes or dummy plugs. Also, the STC could have failed completely now which would keep it from starting. I'm assuming it's an 05+ truck?

Only way to know without taking it apart would be to pressurize the HPO system through the ICP port with the IPR valve commanded closed and then listen for leaks.

Do you have fuel pressure? How long has it been since the filters have been changed?
