Default Car won't start!

Just had my motor rebuilt 3 weeks ago. I have fp Green 20g turbo
1000cc injectors, invidia turbo back. Car has been running fine until today. I was driving when it just died. No warning nothing. I wasn't getting into it at all. It will crank over but won't start. I was wondering if It was maybe flooded or something. Anybody ever have this problem? It's an 04 sti by the way.

Check your cam sensor electrical connectors. I've seen them come disconnected and cause that issue.

So it's deffinately a fuel problem. I sprayed a little starting fluid and it started right up then died. I checked the fuel pump and it's fine considering its a new walbro 255 with 3k miles. I checked the passenger side relay behind the kick panel and it's fine to. Any other ideas!!?

When you cycle the key on, do you here the fuel pump cycle for a couple seconds? Pull the fuel feed line to the rail and cycle the pump. If fuel barely comes out you have an issue. A good fuel pressure tester works great also.

What do you mean when you say the FP is fine. Did you verify pressure or just hear it prime?

Again about the pump. There is power going to the pump but is not priming anymore. It's a new walbro with 3k miles. I figured that's the problem.

I also did pull the feed line to the rails and turned it over and no fuel whatso ever came out.

Just make sure you have ground. If you have power and ground I would say you have found your problem.

If you pulled the feed line (connects to your fuel filter, from fuel rails) most likely you should have had fuel spray out, or at least a little fuel (Built up fuel pressure). If not, then it is most likely your fuel pump. Try checking the connection between the actual pump unit, and the hose that runs down to the end filter. I had mine wiggle loose on me once, and it gave the same issue. (You can hear the pump prime, but still no fuel pressure)
