What do I try next?
Please reconfigure the Gatorade bottle to run directly to the inlet side of the fuel pump. The engine won't run without some fuel pressure to the IP and the height of your Gatorade bottle won't provide it.

You can loosen the hard lines at the injectors to check for fuel. Loosen all five and crank it with your foot on the floor until fuel appears. Then tighten them all up and see if it will start.
