You have fuel, fire. So no computer issues. The only thing is air and if you have a blown plenum gasket there is little or no vacuum to draw air into intake.

Holding the throttle wide open during starting shuts off fuel to injectors,= 'clear engine mode' I am inclined to think that it's flooded, if it fires while mashing the motor. pull plugs, spin engine (holding the throttle wide open) and either replace plugs or dry them out with a propane torch. Just don't get carried away with the torch and screw the plugs up...

What's the ect that you mentioned? Engine coolant temp sensor?

Since you replaced just about every other sensor, I'd try the TPS as well.

Are you using oem replacement sensors or knock off's? Some aftermarket sensors will not work properly as they're not manufactured to the same tolerances as oem.
