Your problem could be cause by either, both or neither. Start by checking the easiest things first. Check that the spark plug wires are connected in the proper firing order. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.
Next check that all of the plugs that were removed are firmly plugged in. Even check the ones you did not remove, just in case.
Next check that you get fuel and spark. Although it is not conclusive, if you smell fuel out of the exhaust, you are probably getting fuel. The best way is to use a fuel pressure gauge to make sure you are getting fuel at the correct pressure. Typically, base fuel pressure is in the neighborhood of 42 psi with the vacuum line disconnected from the pressure regulator. For spark, a quick test is to remove a plug, connect it to the spark plug wire, firmly ground the metal body of the spark plug, crank the engine and observe the gap for spark. This does not tell you the quality of the spark, it only tells you that there is a spark being produced but may not be hot enough to ignite the fuel. If you are not getting a spark, troubleshoot and repair before proceeding.
If all of the above have been done and it still does not start, than check that the timing marks line up.
Post up a follow up if the timing marks are lined up properly.

Most gasoline six cylinder engines fire in sequential order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And most cylinders are numbered the same. Looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle. The left cylinders are old starting at 1 closest to you and in sequential order. The right cylinders are even starting at 2 closest to you and in sequential order.
