Did you check the fuel regulator to see if that is working

You should also check the injectors for power and trigger signals.

So yes, check the fuel injectors plugins with a noid light to see if there is a injection pulse. Otherwise you have a fuel pressure issue, I don't no why you would bypass the fuel pump, you need fuel pressure for it to run. Fuel pressure should be 56 to 63 lbs. Once you build up fuel pressure on a fuel pressure gauge, turn the key off and let it sit. The fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 lbs in 3 minutes. If it does, then there is a problem with the spider injection leaking, and would need to be replaced.
