With your laptop attached and Megatune / TunerStudio running, do you see an RPM indication on the screen while you are cranking?

Take a datalog while you are turning the starter and post it up. Let's have an MSQ file as well.

did you wire your fuel-pump correctly? mine was doing that. it'd start, idle really high, then die. after like 4 attemps, i realized my FP was not running.
wired it, and it now runs no issues.

You're going to need to get your fuel tuning in order. There's several steps, so it's going to take a "manual sized" how-to:
