Did the old engine start ok? If so then take a good look at the Crank Position Sensor or the flywheel sensor ring. Some times the flywheel ring can get bent/damaged during an engine swap. It doesn't take much to dent that ring and it is really close to the CPS. The other thing you can try is turn the key on without starting several times before cranking. This will pulse the fuel pump each time and charge up the fuel pressure. If that works you have a fuel pressure issue (probably a pump) Let me know how it goes.

your fuel pump works or it don't. work you may have a problem with a few dirty fuel injectors or clogged fuel filter

Testimonial: "thanks for the advice i didn't know if the fuel pump went out all at once or slowly went out or what. thanks"
Is the pressure in the fuel system not holding? Fuel pump may be failing or the filter may be bad. Sounds like you're pumping the fuel system back up to pressure before the truck will start. Like when a fuel-injected car runs outta gas and you have to prime the system before it'll start again.

Darien, just because it's getting good spark at the spark plug wires doesn't mean that the spark plugs are firing. Now let's get your girlfriend happy again, Remove those spark plugs, check the center electrode and see if they are worn down, if they are worn down, change all 4, Good luck, Gary
