Problem solved. The damn thing was flooded. Pulled the fuel rails and checked the sensor on the rails. Gas gushed out of the fuel rails. My cousin is a mustang expert and he suggested it may be flooded from trying to start to many times. Pushing the gas pedal to the floor and then starting will purge the system. Thanks for the help guys. I still am a little puzzled as to why it would not start yesterday as it had been sitting for half a day and I did not pump the gas to flood it.

usually it clears after an hour or so but maybe it just had no where to go.

Glad you fixed the problem, and saved $$$$

Good to hear you got it going! Otherwise I would have suggested to check the fuel filter, too. But the fuel pump turns on with the ignition on, and if you have a datalogging device (sct or whatever), you can check the fuel pressure at the injectors.

The fuel pump is accessible under the passenger seat. In the trunk compartment in the very back of the car, down by the spare tire, is the fuel pump driver module (fuel pump controller). It's all pretty easy to get to.
