Stubborn no start issue, looking for advice

Got a friend's pickup at my place trying to get it going again. It's a 95 F250 with e-fuel, Farmer's Diesel injectors (somewhere around 300cc w/100% nozzles I believe), Terminator dual HPOPs, Tyrant tunes, S468 turbo, etc. When I picked the truck up the problem was it wouldn't crank... when you hit the key the starter relay on the fender would smoke. That problem has been resolved, but now the truck won't run. It has run twice for about 3 minutes, but the majority of the time it will crank and crank and crank but NO smoke from the exhaust, no cough, no sputter, no anything. Here's what I have done so far:

Checked all fuses (ad nauseum)
Swapped PCM relay
Swapped CPS (3 different sensors, multiple swaps)
Tried starting with and without ICP plugged in
Checked UVCH's, replaced passenger side due to burned UVCH/gasket
No fuel in coolant
No fuel in oil
HPO reservoir is full
Oil pan is full
Fuel is full
Fuel PSI is 65-67
Tried starting with and without chip installed
Cleaned IPR
Swapped IPR
Checked voltage at IPR plug

My truck starts and runs fine with his PCM, IDM and his IPR harness in my truck so those 3 things are good. Since this is a 95 AutoEnginuity has major heart burn trying to talk to the PCM, I have not been able to get AE to connect, even after calling AE and trying different settings and such with them on the phone while I was in the truck.

WHEN it runs, it runs fine, but only for 3-4 minutes then dies like the key has been shut off. I did ohm test the injectors and they ohmed out high, but they all ohmed out high and the readings between injectors were similar so I'm thinking my multimeter must have been having a bad moment or something. I'm at a loss for what to look for or try next. Suggestions would be highly appreciated!

If you have a chip, pull it. I was having a similar issue and removed the chip, the truck runs fine now. I'm still not certain what happened to my chip, so I'm awaiting an e-mail from Tony to decide what to do with it.

AE should be able to talk to it with your PCM. Or put his PCM in your truck and try to get AE to talk to it. We have two '95s, and select "non-OBDII" wherever you do that in AE (don't have it on this computer), and it hooks up just fine.

Should and will are two different things. Talking with the tech at AE he suspects that the PCM wasn't re-flashed to be OBD2 compatible. The owner of the truck has always had a headache getting AE to work as well.
