You still have an fuel issue. Check the fuel pressure at the schrader valve, it should be 56 to 63 lbs. Then just leave the gauge on it and watch the fuel pressure from its highest reading (being in the normal range) if the pressure drops more than 5 lbs in 3 minutes, then there would be a leak in the injectors, spider fuel lines, or fuel regulator.
