A note about the fuel pump, it is only energized briefly when you turn the key on, just enough to charge the fuel rail.

The fuel pump will not have power going to it full time unless the engineis running__and the DME KNOWS it is running.

I don't don't what other issues you're having, but before you waste a lot of money throwing parts at the car, I thought you might want to know how it works.
