Sucks, for sure.
However, not all hope is lost. You don't mention any clouds. No oil smoke?

When you say the engine sounds terrible; what does that mean? Runs rough? or mechanical grinding and banging noises?

Very first thing you need to do is pull those plugs and do a compression check.

Honestly; on the surface, the symptoms sound more like IMS to me. (this from the guy who thinks the IMS issue is exaggerated).

But if you added lots of smoke to the symptoms, then my mind would shift to other ideas.
