2003 Boxster - Crank No Start

So I am having my first problem with my 03 boxster.

Pulled it out of the garage last week, as I was waiting for the garage door to close the car started stuttering and then engine shut off.

Tried to restart, it cranks but engine won't run.

Here is what I have done so far.

1) Check for codes - No Codes present
2) Replaced battery with a new one
3) Replaced DME, Ignition/O2, Blower Engine Comp and Fuel Pump Relays with new ones
4) New Ignition switch

Car still wont start! I left it cranking for >15 seconds and was able to get engine run for a few seconds, but it felt as if only 1 or 2 cylinders were running, then it shut off and won't start. Still no codes present.

Has anyone had a similar issue? If so how did you get it fixed? What else should I check? Thanks!

Have you checked fuel delivery system? Fuel preasure? Maybe fuel filter problem?

No I have not. I will check the fuel filter. Not sure how to check fuel pressure.

Just for kicks, try putting some gas in the tank. Boxster fuel gauges have been known to go bad. Might save some expensive parts searching.
