Default starting problem

so my car will not start on the first turn over. i can hold it forever and it won't start. it turns over fine but it won't start. sometimes on the second turn over it will, but sometimes it takes more than that. when its turning over it wants to start, it will kinda sputter like its firing but it just won't start. its been like this for awhile and this is what ive changed.

Fuel Pump, fuel regulator, igntion module, coil, spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor.

Default RE: starting problem

perform a fuel pressure test and see if you have sufficient pressure or builds up suffficient pressure in 1 to 2 key cycles max..and check filter for restriction...don't short cut this reccommendation...you need a gauge
