Yes, the truck started up just fine after it died, it struggled to hold the idle around 400RMP's. I drove it back and once I reached my destination it slowly died again. I drove about 4 miles total, reaching 55-60mph.
We drove it back to the show the next day and pumped about 5 gallons of gas out of the bottom portion of the tank (I had topped it off earlier, and that's when all the problems started) to make sure there was no water in the gas. There was NO water but the gas looked yellow. The only additive I put in was Heat, I added it when I topped of my tank. We did not take off the new filter to check it, since we didn't get any sign of water or any other crap in the gas, other than it being fairly yellow.
Since there was no water in the tank, a friend of ours looked it up on YouTube trying to figure our what it could be. He decided to clean a portion of the fuel system. I can't remember what it is called. The actual part is located under the VORTEC cover of the engine. That part was really dirty. After we cleaned it and put it back on, the truck started up fine (like it did when we replaced the pump). The truck Idled a lot better holding 700RPM's. It doesn't struggle to hold the idle any more.
We didn't have time to check the pressure and I'll let you know what we come up with.
The check engine light did not come on after I initial started it, once we replaced the pump, nor has it come on since.
