First of all after 4 years, you need to drain the gas and be certain that it is getting fresh gasoline. Change the fuel filter as well. Unfortunately after sitting for that length of time, gaskets dry out and become brittle as well as vacuum lines. That's a good place to start. Not certain what type of fuel delivery system that it has but that needs to be checked also. If you are referring to a no crank situation, besides having a fully charged battery with at least 13 volts, it should turn over.

From what you are describing it sounds like it must be a valve lifter sticking. Try putting a cup of transmission oil in your crankcase, or pick up some suitable additive from your local parts store. I wish i could hear it and give you a better idea. Maybe let them listen to it at the parts store, and they can determine if it's a lifter or not. Let me know how you make out.

The easiest thing to check first is the body ground cable, is it there, is it loose, is it broken? take it off, clean the connections and reinstall it. Do the dash lights or interior lights go out when the engine dies? What do you mean that the speedometer doesn't work right? Does it bounce, Bang going into reverse intimates it has an automatic transmission, and you are driving the car when it shuts down. Des the transmission do anything strange while driving? If driving and the engine shuts down, does the car come to a stop somewhat slowly or abruptly? If abruptly, it may be the transmission going into two gears, stalling the engine.
It is most likely an electrical problem that needs more diagnosis. Is this a rust belt car, is there rust under the fuse box or where wires go from front to back in the car, or in the driver or passenger side firewall or floorboard? Does it make any difference if the headlights or parking lights are on or off? Does the car have air conditioning, if so does it make a difference if it is on or off?
It may even be the ECU quitting when hot, does the problem go away, or take longer to happen if you put an ice pack on the ECU?

Changing spark plugs "and all that" fixed this man's car.

You're changing/swapping a lot of parts, but are you getting spark on #8 - at the plug? Is the injector actually getting a firing signal (use a noid light to check)? Can you actually hear the engine missing/skipping, or are you basing this all on the CEL and (presumably) P0308 code?
If the compression is good (as good as the other cylinders), and you are getting spark at the plug, and the injector is getting a good signal, I don't understand the dealer diagnosing a bad head or shot engine. These would indicate a mechanical problem and compression would be the indicator.

O rings are cheap and replaceable, there would have to be a crack in the housing, or some catastrophic failure to have to replace the whole thing. YOU COULD PROBABLY GET ONE CHEAPLY AT A SALVAGE YARD,
Do you have a trusted independent mechanic, or one highly recommended to give you an other quote? Some dealerships only replace parts, sometimes,only replace assemblies, they don't repair anything.

Possible partially plugged catalytic converter? The pop may be unburned fuel igniting. I would want to check the exhaust manifold pressure. Have a helper hit the gas pedal and back off several times and feel the exhaust flow, if it doesn't seem to increase in relation to the engine speed increases, and/or it gets extremely hot, compared to a normally running car.that is a good indicator of a plugged cat.
If you also get a pop, especially if it includes a burst of exhaust as, that is an additional indicator.

The best way to fault find in swap coil 1&2 with coil 3&4. If the fault doesn't change, it is possibly the plugs or something more sinister electrically.
