Ok here are a few things to check, the connector at the fuel pump are known failures, look for a burn mark inside the connector or just replace it, next make sure the fuel pump ground is good both at the connector and the frame mount, then see what you pressure is, if it is still low then do a deadhead pressure test, it should be really close to 66 lbs, if it isn't then something is wrong with the pump or it is the wrong pump. Make sure they gave you one for the Vortec engine.
