wantitgetit - What is your fuel pressure? Check to make sure you are getting the proper fuel pressure with the new pump. Look in Chapter 4 in your Haynes manual to see how to check the pressure and the specifications. Check the simple stuff like kinked lines or damaged wiring after the installation.
