Also, I know you have a new fuel pump but do a bleed down test on the fuel system. Should not drop more than 5 lbs. and hold pressure for at least 1 min. This will tell you if something is leaking.

listening to the dealer will get you in trouble every time!!!!! lets find out what is missing fuel , spark ,acontrol issue ect... first start by spraing alittle carb cleaner into the intake do not remove the mass air flow sensor . your just trying to see if it will try to start
