Start by checking for codes. If none stored, then figure out if this is spark or fuel related. Have you spark to the plugs? What is the fuel pressure at the rail? With all the work that has already been done, it is even possible that the original problem was fixed, but another was introduced.

You can check the codes yourself by turning the ign to "On" (do not go to start), then back to "Off" (do not go all the way back to were the key can be removed), then back to "On", "Off", and back to "On". After a couple of seconds, the Check Engine Light will begin to flash a series of codes. 12 will be flash flashflash. 12,33, and 55 are normal. Report back what you find. 2"x4" in the tank....First I ever heard of that one.
