Compression should be in the 150psi range not 90 psi.

ok i understand if the compression should be 150psi (when engine has ran) but the engine has never started... and always been taught that all you need i 90 psi (actually psi on car is 115 to 120 psi) until the rings get seated... then compression goes up correct?

Well if your doing everything correctly the car should be running. How did you check for fuel?

any upgrades. All i can think of is something either on the cold start or you have low fuel pressure. Something may not be plugged in. It could be a bunch of things though
