    Carb cleaner does not burn! It takes a few turns to get it out the system. Hope you cleaned the inside of the throttle body with an old toothbrush or rag to allow the butterfly to return fully.
    If plugs and coils ok, next step is a compression test. If all okay - around 180psi on each - then check for air leaks at the inlet manifold using the carb cleaner. Again, if ok, time to check the injectors and finally the timing. That should keep you busy for a bit.
