Its unlikely, but very possible, you might have gotten a bad fuel pump, new means new, it doesn't always mean good. Airtex? If so that's not uncommon to get a bad one out the batch

And the fuel at the fuel rail, may be there, but it takes only 2-3 pounds less than what you need to cause a problem, I'd do a pressure test
