Did you send the head out to be checked when you did the gasket? Overheats with aluminum engines usually warps or cracks them. Did you re check compression? Small cracks may not be noticed without machine shop testing. When it's just the head gasket, two cylinders are low side by side.

If the head is good, compression is good, and spark to#2 is strong, check the fuel injector, 123,000 miles it wouldnt be a stretch to see a clogged injector or two.

Ive unpluged each injector drop off seams to be the same I pulled the fuel rail and checked the screen in each injector all were clean. The car was running fine till it didnt start and was brught to me with no spark. I have found in the past ford and chevys with bad mafs that gave me similer problems. But this prick doesnt have a maf sensor. The coil had a burn or ark mark on it? Dont know if this is any help

Checked for Tech bullitens today, news isnt good if this is your problem! Check valve heights!
