Wiring, connectors, grounds, double check the fuel pump connector as these are known failures, if that checks good then start checking the wiring from the fuel pump relay to the fuel pump.

See if you have power at the relay. If so see if you have power at the pump. If so, check your grounds for the pump. Is your gas gauge working? If all this checks out, the new pump is most likely defective. HTH. -Jim

The relay is getting power and the fuel pump pumps fuel after I force it to start but it floods

You should not have to force it, then you have the flooding to tend with and that is usually a fuel pressure regulator especially if it is the Vortec engine.

Most likely a bad pump.

Thank you
