Here couple pointers to push you back on the right path (so I hope): Start with the payoff function and hence $S(T)$, which consists of $(W(T)-W(t))$ , $W$ being a Brownian Motion under the risk neutral measure) you can greatly simplify by working with a standard normal random variable: $$Y = \frac{-(W(T)-W(t))}{\sqrt{T-t}}$$, which helps to get rid of ...


Your formula, as it stands, is incorrect, at least is if $E$ means the "expected value under real-world probabilities". I wrote a blog post explaining the basic rationale behind risk-neutral pricing where you will see that if the Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing theorem holds, you can write: Let $X_t=S_{1,t}-S_{2,t}$ $$e^{-rt} X_t = ...
