Replaced upper/lower manifold gakets. Now no spark!

Hey. I got a little bit of a problem. I replaced upper lower intake gaskets, as well as my spark plugs and coil pack. Im getting no spark what so ever from the plugs. Im lost and any insight what to test or replace next would be greatly appreciated. Checked all my wiring and everything is connected and I have no extra bolts. Fuel pressure is reading 50-65psi while cranking. Thanks!

did u let the battery reset? it keeps memory for so long. the recommended way around here is to disconnect battery and turn on headlight switch for like 30 seconds.

The battery was disconnected for a week while I was doing both the manifold gaskets and rebuilding my injectors yadda yadda. plus I cleared all codes with my scanner.
