May check the fuel relay,but i think you may need to check that new fuel pump,some time,s you get a bad aftermarket one right off the bat.

Did you change the fuel filter? Did you check for spark at the engine? Also take a look at the check valve at the fuel pump. If they get stuck closed then you won't get any fuel.

Check out your air flow meter
