Default No spark! Now I'm out of Ideas and desperate

On the road at 40mph and my 95 civic SI just lost power and quit. I'm getting fuel, because I can smell it at the exhaust and plugs. The rotor turns while cranking so I don't think the timming belt is broken. It'll crank like a champ and I've replaced the ignition module, cap, rotor, and plugs but i'm still not getting spark. I thought for sure the Ignition module was the problem, but it still won't start. I'm 1500 miles from home and all the local shops here in Okcity want to rape me on costs. Any Ideas? Thanks.

Is there any way of checking the ecu short of towing the car to a shop? If I lost compression wouldn't I hear the escaping air during cranking? Thanks for the help so far.

Thanks everyone for your help. It was the coil. I had ruled it out since I got it the night before, but the parts store sold me a bad one. Thanks again for all the help!!
