Cylinder not firing

Hey guys I have a fresh build going on. Pulled an L76 from a running G8 and swapped my V6 G8 with the new powertrain. While the engine was out we did a cam and stall converter then put her back in. Now that the car was going to be tuned after startup Cylinder 1 is not firing as it should. We tried changing plugs, wires, coil packs and injectors but no matter what combo we used Cylinder 1 remained the problem. Note the engine bay harness came from a crashed vehicle. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!

2009 G8 Base (GT swapped)

For sure you know the valve action is correct (full stroke open an close for each) ? The compression reading is good ? If all OK, is the 12 volts showing up at pin D of the coil connector as well as a good ground reading from pin A ? Is 12 volts showing up at pin A of the injector connector?
