I highly doubt that all 6 of them would go bad at one time, but its possible

Were the coil packs tested in the car? Or removed and tested individually? If tested on the car, then it's something after, wires, plugs. If tested out of the car then they may be good, but might not be getting power at all, meaning something farther back is broken.

Wish I had the time too help ya out, you are not too far from me.

Also, try not to jump around checking things, this is electrical, start in one spot and move forward or backwards from there.

Had the same problem on my truck. Anytime it would rain the truck wouldn't start. Would crank like a mofo, but no start. Sometimes just randomly it would start, until it just wouldn't start at all. Had fuel at the rail, but no spark. It was the crankshaft sensor. Its a small Sensor under the harmonic Balencer. It cost like $25-$30. 2 bolts and a electrcial connector. Good place to start. Little annoying to change because I had to take the belt off.
