If you changed all of those parts and still no luck, check the interior ECU. It could be fried. Once the ECU is out, You will have to remove the cover to look at the board for any obvious signs of being fried. At the very least you could rule that out.

You've replaced a lot of things, did the diagnosis show that all of them were bad? Have you checked to make sure that the timing belt isn't damaged? If the timing belt is stripped at the crankshaft it will visually look good when you pull the cover back but wont turn the camshafts while cranking giving you no spark or fuel pulse.

It could also be a corroded or melted inline fusible link or splice which is not something you could easily find without searching for it.
