Alright.I'm the owner of the car in question, here's what I've checked:
-spark is sent to the plugs without fail.
-fuel pressure is fine to the rail, but my guess is it's not being injected due to an ecu issue or grouding failure, likely from the rain (it was raining so hard the cabin was leaking a little, which may have shorted something in the wiring around the ecu).
-I have the ecu sitting in two pieces on a table, there is some light rust and corrosion just from age but no major burns. There is slight water damage on the outside of the case but no evidence it penetrated to the board. The ecu does power up but returns a 55-No Malfunction when checked for codes.
-timing chain is intact, as the camshaft spins and the valves open and shut. It is theoretically possible it jumped a cog, but I'm hoping to rule this out as the engine was under no real stress at the time (cruising at 2500rpm, no accel) so I don't see how it would happen.
