Is the pedal going to the floor?

Yes

You have a busted brake line or the master cylinder is bad. Fill it up with brake fluid and pump up the pedal.Look to see if it runs out on the ground. If no leaks,the master cylinder is bad.

Already did both of those

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installing?
