Have you already eleminated every other possibility?
Because MAp sensors can break, just like everything else, but it is very unlickly it will.

Is the starter turning over the engine? Is fuel comming into the cylinders? Is air comming into the cylinders? Are you getting good spark?

I think the MAP sensor is one of the last things you could check

If you still want to check the MAP sensor. You can check the voltage on the connector of the sensor. With the contact of the car on, it should read between 4 and 6 Volts

You can always add an injector cleaning additive to your fuel. There is no harm in that and it might help.
But if you are getting fuel from the injectors, I don't think they are at fault.

The colour of your spark doesn't always say anything. The colour of the tip of the sparkplug does. it should be a greyish/brown colour. That indicates that your air/fuel mixture is correct and you have a nice detonation in the combustion chamber.

If the tip of the sparkplugs are white (engine is running lean) or black (could be a number of things) or show any disformation, that would indicate that something is wrong.

Fuel Pressure regulator is probably shot allowing too much pressure in fuel rail. That would account for engine being flooded. Should be at far end of fuel rail with a vacuum line attached.Check to make sure the vac lines are attached and not leaking. Here is a pic for a 4afe , yours should be similar. Did you ever remove timing belt cover to insure it is intact and hasn't slipped on cogged pulleys?
