If your eighth digit in your VIN number is a Z then it is Throttle body Fuel injection (TBI). That is low pressure 9 to 13 PSI. If the eighth digit is a W then it is Central Port Fuel Injection (CPI). That is high pressure 58 to 64 PSI.
You purchased the wrong fuel pump. This would have not happened at a NAPA parts house. What ever parts house you are dealing with did not ask you the correct questions.

BE VERY CAREFUL THAT THE "SPYDER" INJECTORS ARE NOT LEAKING. If the plastic lines are leaking you could eventually hydrolock the engine or a FIRE.
You must have ignition or it would not start, "listen" to the fuel injector. Using a mechanic's stethoscope (or use a long screw driver placing the handle end up to your ear place the metal tip end of the screwdriver against the body of the fuel injector), get a friend to crank over the engine while you "listen" to the fuel injector listen to each injector at the same point of the injector body. You should hear "click, click, click" as the injector is electrically opened and closed by the computer. If the injector is not being triggered you will not have fuel getting into the engine's cylinders. Disconnect the electrical connector at the fuel injector with the ignition key in the "on" position, (next position after the accessory position) you should have 12 volts at one of the two wires at the injector. This true for most vehicles but you need to consult a workshop manual for your vehicle to see that this is true for your vehicle. When the engine is running the second wire at the injector gets (triggered) grounded by the computer in your vehicle many times a second controlling exactly when and how much fuel gets injected into the engine. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate

not only check the fuel pressure and volume, the crank sensor also controls the injectors operation.
