Default bolt on and new fuel pump trouble starting?

Any ideas on what would cause this? Brand new plugs and wires. Installed new fuel pump recently also.

Any help on things to check starting point on what it could be?

Sounds like a primeing problem from the fuel pump ...try to turn key on and off before starting if it starts then that's the problem

could be air in the lines thats why you turn the key on and off 5 times before you start it for the first time after fuel pump after that i should be good..unless its sucking air from some where

A fuel pressure test will tell you tons of valuable info. That should be your next course of action.

Sounds like it's running on 7 maybe 6 cylinders to me. Crossed or burnt wire, broken plug.
