SVT Cranks but no Start

So my SVT Focus has had intermittent starting problems for a while now and now it just keeps cranking and wont start. Initially it would be hard to start sometimes and take a few tries but it would start. The car would also start and stay revved at around 4k rpms for a little bit until I drove around some. Also it would die at low RPMs once in a while while driving then I would have to start the car again. This would happen every so often but then it would go away. However it happened again 2 days ago and it took a while longer but it started. It was incident free last night and after I replaced the front O2 sensor today it won't start. I can hear the fuel pump come on but it just keeps cranking but won't start. I checked for spark and there was none. The coil pack, wire, and plugs have all been replaced within 9 months with all motor-craft parts. The wiring for the crank position sensor was fried so I replaced it but still no spark. There is also no codes. Any ideas of what else to check? Crankshaft Position Sensor? Camshaft Position sensor?
