    an engine needs 3 things to run:
    correct timing
    fuel
    spark

    with those three things (even if one is slightly off or weak) the car will attempt to start.

    if you arent getting any combustion, check the timing one more time. do a compression test as stated above. even with shotty compression, the engine should still attempt to fire. check your firing order, verify that is correct. check to see if the cyliders are flooded as all hell (chances are youve been cranking the piss out of it trying to get it to start, and if theres no combustion then that fuel is just sitting in there)

    you gotta give us some more precise info on what exactly it sounds like. combustion has a unique sound, and an engine just turning over has a unique sound.

    no sputtering or wanting to start with some hesitation?
    do a compression test and verify that the timing is absolutely correct one more time.

    also, unhook the injectors and pop the spark plugs out. turn the car over for a bit to clear out all that fuel/shit thats built up in there from trying to start the car.
