By any chance did your timing belt break or jump time before you started changing all the parts? If so do a compression check to check for bent valves. Any showing 0 psi will have bent valves. Just a thought with you saying you had to re time it.

my timing jumped time but I have compression. there is absolutely no spark coming from coil at all.. by any chance would i need to flash my ecm? it turns over just wont fire..
