You’ve got a T4 equipped garage in Newton Abbot (Exeter Road Garage) just down the road from you. They should be able to pinpoint the problem with the T4, and save you a lot of time / expense guessing and replacing parts needlessly.

Harry, make sure the ECM isn't sitting in a puddle, and see if there is 12v present on the white/purple wire of the fuel pump.

Don't crack the injector unions Harry, the rail pressure on crank alone is 2200 psi, will the car start with a sniff of easistart?

My Rover eats cam sensors, albeit aftermarket ones. Same symptoms, perfectly fine one minute, park then won't fire up, just turns over. I keep two in the car, usually last 6 months or so at £20 each approx. Quick to change, whip of the manifold cover then unplug and one little bolt.
Hope it's that.
Good luck.
