I'd try to check if you have enough fuel pressure...How many km's are on the car and can you here the pump when you turn the key to on?

I mean the inta tube where your throttle body is right beside your distributor its the big tube that runs towards your air cleaner.To cycle your pum just turn the key to the on position and see if you can hear the pump if you can hear it,turn the key off and then on again-do this about 3 or 4 times and then try starting.If you car starts then surely it will the pump not holding fuel pressure in the fuel line.If you cant hear the pump when you turn on the key,the pump might be stuffed/burnout or maybe the relay is faulty.

To check if you have the right fuel pressure you will need a fue pressure gauge.Have you tryed cycling the pump a couple of times and starting??How did you go?

Yes it is possible.So how did you go??But i havent seen one that has no injectors working at all..

You have spark/you have injector pulse/you have fuel but dont know if you have enough fuel pressure or you might have a faulty reg which isnt holding the fuel pressure in the fuel line.

Do you have another EB or ED you could try parts off???

A fuelregulator is position on the end of the fuel rail.It regulates the fuel pressure in the fuel system.If this is faulty you will have too much fuel pressure of too little fuelpressure.

How long hasnt it been running for?

im guessing fuel pump is running fine?

give the distributor cap a couple of taps....and then try and turn her over......check the wiring of the injectors....since none of them are working check the main one where they all connect.

good luck

phong =P~
