Default Died while driving, wolnt start

I recently dropped a 2.5 into my 97 ranger, it ran great for about a month and then it died one morning all of the sudden. I was driving normal (not beatin it) and it started acting like it was out of gas, if you hit the gas at all it would bog down. It sat for a few hours and it wouldnt start at all when I tried it, I had to pull it home and got it started from pulling it. it was still running extremely rough and you couldnt accelerate at all, i got it home and replaced the injectors and MAF, swapped the coil packs and checked the plugs and wires, changed fuel filter and the fuel pressure checked out. And still didnt run, i was looking through the fuse box and i found that the pcm relay was completely fried, burned to a crisp, so I replaced it and it started up but wouldnt run or accelerate still. So Ive been trying to figure this thing out for about a month now and sometimes when i go out to start it i can get it to run, it runs extremely rough and will not idle. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED
