Have you done any testing? Do you have spark--fuel--injector pulse? The cranking rpms may be faster if timing chain is broke. If you remove oil fill cap and shine a lite down in there, can you see the valve-train or cam moving when you crank it? If you can see down in there and no movement, engine cranking, it could be the chain.
