Default no fuel pressure w/racetronix fuel system

drove my car for the first time in many years few days ago, suddendly the motor stopped and did not want to start agen,

there is no fuel pressure, the car has a racetronix fuel system wi the intank walbro pump, Fast fuel rails,

it went out of fuel. i know that can kill the oem pumps, but are the walbro units as weak?

is it anything i should check first, i realy hope that i dont hafe to take the tank out agen..

Did you drive the car on the gas that had been sitting in the tank for 'many years'? If so, this is your first problem, not good...should have drained and refilled with fresh. Secondly, having a fuel pump sit in a tank unused for many years is not ideal; and you do not want to run a fuel pump dry either. You have hit the trifecta on 'how to kill your electric fuel pump'

even sitting a year can damage an electric pump and no matter how good the pump is running it out of fuel will damage it fuel is what cools and lubricates the pump

Can you hear the fuel pump running when you cycle the ignition?

^ Good question.

Do you have the hot wire fix? Check the fuse for that and then check to see if the relay in back is triggering. and has power in and out.

the pump was installed in the car last year yes, but i had never used the car since, it was installed, added fuel and checked if it worked, car sat in my workshop

Are your 100% sure it's a real Walbro pump and not a chinese knockoff? Where did you buy it?
