Oh man, this is killing me...have we confirmed TDC at #1 firing position??!?!?!?

I recommend that you confirm TDC and make sure the distributor/rotor is aligned with #1 plug wire when #1 piston is at TDC. That, plus all the fuel stuff mentioned and it should fire. Although I am a big advocate for ethanol free gas to reduce uncertainty, I've seen some A4's run on some s#!tty stuff...but the timing has to be right and the wires have to be in the right order. Make sure the timing is not out 180.. (TDC is when you feel pressure on your thumb while it is over the #1 plug hole as the piston comes up...the roll pin should also be straight up and down at this point).
