If your using a secondary fuel source to make the engine run(such as carb cleaner or ether) then either your NOT getting fuel to the injectors or your injectors are NOT firing. You need to test for fuel pressure with a pressure gauge.

Turn power to ON and probe 1 of your fuel injectors. You should see 12v on one of the wires. Usually a pink wire on injectors.

You said you think it'* at specs. Did you actually put a gage on it? You can have pressure but no volume. How'* the fuel filter?
