Well i will say this,if you have good spark,and good fuel pressure,timming is the issue for the two to work,check the timming.

Have you had the engine compression checked?

No actually thank you for pointing it out

Check the Catalytic Converter. Look to see if it's discolored like it's been real hot. I've come across this before when there seems to be no reason why the engine doesn't start.
