Cranks But Won't Start

I have a 2000 Ford Mustang 3.8 that cranks but won't start. ( YOUTUBE LINK TO A VIDEO OF MY PROBLEM )

I got the car and it worked perfectly the entire day ( must of started it about 10 times )!

The next day it would not start sometimes it sputters/coughs .

I changed the spark plugs and wires. My battery is brand new.

After i started i attempted to start it many, many times, i pulled a plug and its black and has fuel on it

I also checked all the fuses ( under the dash and the hood)

I contacted the old owner and he said he never had any problems.

I get no codes coming off of it.

I have a good fuel pump because i hear it prime when i turn the car on, and gas spits out the schrader valve when i tested it….

Also, if i spray starter fluid in the throttle body the car won't start ( not even for a couple seconds )

I also forgot to mention that i did manage to get it started a couple days ago, and realized that BOTH catalytic converters where blocked THEY WHERE RED HOT, i took the exhaust system off and it started and would only stay running if i had my foot all the way down on the gas, if i tried to shift into drive it would almost die and would not move an inch. I put the exhaust back on and now it will just cough, it won't stay running. Please help me out!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
