    To start:
    I have verified I have spark on all 4 cyls
    I have verified I am getting fuel to all 4 cyls
    I have good compression on all 4 cyls

    But the engine will not start...

    I have pulled my spark plugs out and they have fuel on them.
    My firing order is correct (Inverted for 95 eprom w/ eculink)
    Injector order is stock for a 98 GST

    You guys think it may be bad gas?
    It has been in the car for a few months.

    I don't think you have bad gas. It take much more (a lot more) than a few months for gas to go bad. I've let gas sit on tanks for years with sealed gas systems & still the car(s) would run fine.

    12+ volts on the system.
    Looking back I had the sending unit off so I could fit it with AN lines. It was off for 3 weeks, plus another week to fix a blown out hose between the pump and the sending unit.

    12.xx? What was the exact number?

    Numbers that have to do with electrics are kind of..... specific.

    Issue Has been resolved. It was the Power transistor unit. I bought a new one, slapped it in, and it started right up.
