new injectors = no start

I did DIY Stage 3's filled the res up with oil started up and ran perfect for 5 mins then died and wouldn't start back up. Got a new fuel bowl from ford ( cuz I broke it)yesterday put it on and still doesn't start . The oil res is full, swapped IPR's out of another truck. I checked the fuel bowl and it has plenty of fuel in there. Has plenty of cranking power. Tried cranking 15+ times and nothing. What else could it be I want to run this thing in the dirt drags tonight HELP PLEASE!!!

Are you able to scan the PCM and look for codes?
When cranking are you getting any smoke out of the exhaust?

Also, be aware that excessive cranking will cook your starter. And these things have to spin fast or they will not start. And make sure your batteries are fully charged.

Then go from there.

Well my wait to start light won't come on now. Unhooked chip & cleaned, still nothing changed. Checked fuse #30 looks ok

How long did your truck take to crank over? Ive been trying for 5 hours just today

It wont take that long, The wait to start light not coming on indicates a PCM problem...
