Cobra wont start!

I have a 98 cobra thats basically stock (exhaust, intake, tune) nothing serious. Yesterday I get in my car, turn the key and it turns over fine but it wont start. A few weeks ago on the dyno the fuel pump showed signs of fatigue so i figured that was the problem. It was clicking more than normal when i would cycle the key and the pressure was low so I replaced it. Still not cranking. I have checked all fuses, IAC, TPS, and pump voltage. Also I'm not getting any trouble codes on my scanner except p1000 and I know that dosent go away. I have no clue what steps to take next and surely I am not the only one who has ever had this problem. If anyone has any idea whats going on I'd appreciate the help. Oh and sorry if this is already a thread, I am new to the forum thing and I didnt see any other posts about this particular issue.

I would start with checking for spark, and the replaced gas pump, check you have pressure, and of course air filter is clean.

Could be a clogged fuel filter as well. Had this happen on an old fox body I had. I bought a fuel pump and everything, turned out the fuel filter was the culprit.
