new uppipe gaskets. but this is also a sign of low compression. is there any soot on the metal heat shielding back by the turbo?

it could be a loose or shot turbo DP clamp. thats my issue.

not necessarily. if your lucky you have bad injector o-rings.

worst case is a dusted motor. does your air filter box have plastic or metal screws on top?

can you jump the glow relay with a screwdrive or jumper cables? its to the left of the fuel bowl, the two large posts. jump it for about 15 or 20 seconds or so then try and start. if your relay is bad it will start.

is the K&N box an aftermarket box entirely or jsut a K&N filter in the stock box?

the stock box that had plastic screws was recalled becuase it allowed dirt past the air filter and would dust motors. hopefullty thats not your problem.
