an update to the most recent: the car is running again

Not quite sure what happened, but here is what I have done:
- removed intercooler
- fiddled with wires here and there (no change, spark still missing)
- measured from coil if there would be voltage, key turned to position where fuel pumps are running, 0V.
- cranking car, could see perhaps 0.2-0.3V from coil
- then removed connector from CDI, measured 11.5 V from cable going to port no. 8. (Ignition turned ON)
-- other cables going to CDI ---> 0V
- put back in place the CDI connector
- was at this point very unhappy, about to leave car for the day, but then thought I will just one more time crank the car ... and guess what ... she started right up

Quickly put intercooler back on, and re-tried starting, and yes, she is starting fine now.

Quite mysterious, but I am rather happy now. One thing I have noticed in engine bay, is poorly looking cables, and connectors (such as CDI) was badly corroded, almost like connectors metal had disappeared and there was whitish residue (corrosion) left. Really would like to replace all fuel lines in engine bay, and all cables, but not sure if it is possible engine in place. Would appreciate any opinions about how to do it (is it possible to replace all cables with engine in place etc.).
