Possibly the spark plug wires are bad, to much resistance.

Double check the ground, and make sure the cap on the Optispark unit isn't what's arcing instead.

No spark would usually be the ignition coil.

A flat camshaft could cause this if you have already ruled out wrong wire order and any other ignition problems. Each factor would have to be checked in order to determine the real problem.

When you bought it did they tell you it would have to be programmed by the dealership?

Ignition is required for an engine to work. Failure of ignition would prevent the engine working.
