Your voltage sounds fine.  The relay under the back seat is the main power 

Are the compresssion, timing, both advance mechanisms working/correctly set? 
 At this point I would be thinking of swapping in alternate computers or 
pressure sensors, but it is VERY IMPORTANT not to just jump to the 
conclusion that it is a FI problem.

Make sure the spark plugs are not set too wide.  .025" works nicely; .028 is 
sometimes too wide.  The plug center electrode should have nice sharp 
corners; if they are rounded off replace them.  Make sure the HV wires are 
in good shape and the nose of the coil is clean.
