Default 2002 WRX 4 AET won't start !!!!!!!!!!!

So here goes please any advise will be helpfull.

I rebuild the engine put it in and does not want to start. PO336, checked timing 4 times and it is spot on, new battery, new crank angle sensor, checked harness plugs all of them (crank angle conector, two big ones on driver side, gray one on pass dide) to insure no connectors pushed back, Coilpacks black plugs on back white in front, got great compresion, injector pulse and pump working, verified fuel lines, cleaned new spark plugs. Even put octane booster in the tank. But cranks fires for a second and then loses spark. WTF.

After fixing a misfire due to a funky coil pack I was having the same problem you described, it ended up being a bad connection to the MAF, hope this helps.

No even put the original one back on just to make sure its not that. Going to Tom Wood Subaru I give up. Got a ECU for it maybe its that. This issue really got me stumped. But I will post what the out come is so that none of you have to go threw the hell I am going threw. GD

Is it cranking at all? If it is turning over it is either a fuel or spark issue. If it does nothing it is a power delivery issue ie a sensor or something
