Check the fuel pressure.
Check the fuel pump section. There is a possibility air is being drawn into system due to a leak in the hoses or pump strainer.

You need a fuel pressure gauge to be attached to the fule delivery line. You should be able to loan the equipment from shops that does that.

Recheck the fuel pump installation. Ensure the sealing rings are not leaking.
