Scan for codes if you can if none found check cam and crank resistance if they are high might be the cause. If you have anti theft try resetting that or if key type try a different key.

Have you tried to reset your anti theft? If you have spark at the coil but not at the plugs then it's has to be either a bad wire/connection or bad rotor or dist cap is the power going to coil a light spark or a good one? Have you tried replacing pgm relay with a like relay and finally is this an ultra low emission engine or has this been modified in any way.
