I assume engine spins but won't catch.

Test for spark usng a proper inline spark tester to confirm the presence or absence of spark. You should also check to see if you have 12V at the center wire of the coil pack connector.

It's an SPI so doing a commpression test should be high on your list of diagnostic tests. An engine with reduced or no compression on one or more cylinders will spin easily.
