Exclamation Crank but no start, HELP!

So my 1996 318ti will crank but not start, here's a background:

It's a 1996 5speed 318ti with 160k miles, we bought it not being able to start it was probably sitting for a month or two with the previous owner, and sat in our garage for half a year until we had time for it, we investigated the no start problem and assumed it was the starter, so we replaced it with a new starter and also replced some old crusty hoses from the intake system with new hoses.

The car would crank! But....that was it... so we got a new battery, and also replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump with new ones..

Aaaaaaannd now, it still only cranks and that's about it...it's getting spark and obviously the starter's engaging because it's cranking, it's not a EWS issue we also bought a new key from the dealer... if we put starter fluid in it it will sound like it starts MAYBE 1 second but just cut off, the fuel pump and relay and ALL the fuses are good so i'm confused... What else do i need to look for to get this dang thing to run?!

This car has been a PITA and i just want to get this dang thing to start... Please help!!!

Could the injectors.. Or fuel pressure regulator be the culpret? I'm just so confused somebody help me!!
