I had the old plastic intake and switched it to the one with the aluminum cross over.

Vortech supercharger, 42# injectors, no clue on what maf but the previous owner had it working on that maf, ford Gt fuel pump, afm power pipe, dragon intake elbow, and 75mm throttle body, also just put ngk tr6's in it gapped at .35

Could be a few things. What did you use for a fuel line on the ford GT pump?

You probably pinched the gasket for the intake manifold. Which sucks. Did you torque them down in the right sequence?

Stock lines, and I don't think anything pinched but there's a bare spot where you can see the gasket and looks like something is supposed to go there so I put a bolt there too hold that spot down

not having a starter tune will not work. your sitting on 42# injecters with a random maf now. also since you have a power pipe the maf can be sitting in a bad position making your maf counts be to high or low. also you gotta fix that intake leak, and figure out what maf you got. hell i would fix the intake leak and get it towed to a tuner

From what Ive heard you cant use the stock fuel line on the GT pump. Itll break and leak. You need a Gates Submersible fuel hose. I think I got mine from AtomicPerformance.com

Is the fuel pressure inertia switch pressed in?

As far as the intake, Idk man, I think the gasket may be off alittle. I could be wrong. If it were me, I would swap the fuel line out first.

Did you torque the intake manifold down in the right order? Theres a specific order you have to do it in, cant just bolt it all down in whatever order.

if it does not have a brand name on the senser, odds are its a lightning maf. if it is 90mm (about 4") on both ends, all black with out a iat senser its a lightning or cobra maf

Ehhh you have some problems man. Hate to say it, but it has to happen.

Take the intake off, fix the gaskets, and do yourself a favor and get a hanes repair manual at Autozone. Shows everything, and itll be helpful to you.

Look for the right order, and right amount of torque to put on the bolts for the intake manifold. So then thats done.

Next, get a submersible fuel hose. Make sure when you put it in, it doesnt kink.

Find out what kind of MAF it is, email your tuner see if he can send you a base tune.

Another thing, did you solder spade terminals on your Ford GT pump. Did you connect the right ones? The positive and negative are marked, just hard to see.

I think alot of the non starting issues have a lot to do with the fuel pump. Then the intake manifold obviously leaking isnt helping at all.

The Ford GT pump is a pain in the ass. Requires some modifications. Needs to have spade terminals soldered on the prongs of the pump. Then solder the wires and shrink wrap em.

Need to drill holes in the basket so the pump doesnt suck the basket dry at WOT pulls. I did 2 in the bottom, and 3 in the front. Deleted the PPRV.

Used a Gates submersible fuel hose. Which you need to. Stock one will leak, need a submersible fuel hose cause if its not, the fuel will eat away at a regular rubber hose and itll leak.

I honestly dont recomend the Ford GT pump. It allegedly flows 310lph, but its such a hit or miss. I purposley got it so i wouldnt need a BAP, I maxed it at 375rwhp. I would have either just gone with a Focus, or used cobra hat with pumps.

Man if I were you, Id sell it and just buy a Focus 255lph pump. Itll drop right in.

For that pump, yeah you should drill holes. I think I did 5/8 holes. 2 on the bottom, and 3 up front.

does your fuel pump sound like its running ok. i hade this same problem it ended up being the red button by the back left tail light was pushed down. check it to make sure your pump is still turned on because that's the emergency shut off.
