    The turbo versions of the 2.0 liter engine use BCPR7ES gapped to 1.0-1.1mm, so maybe the parts counter guy got them mixed up? Not sure about your heat range question though.

    It seems that you have thrown a lot of parts at the car without a real diagnosis. It is not out of the question that some new parts may be bad out-of-the-box. Run some basic tests to get an idea of...

    Have you checked the fuel pump? You should be able to hear it under the rear seats when first turning the key to "ON" -- lift up the rear seat cushions to make it easier to hear.
