My friend had the same type of symptoms, there is a spider wed style od hoses under the intake that delivers fuel to all the cylinders that he found to have hairline cracks in it. Found out this is a know problem especially in the 4.3L Vortex

Aftermarket pump or OEM? If aftermarket, take it back and get a new one. Before you go through all that though, you may want to check the fuel pressure. You need to check the specifications on what the pressuresupposed to be for this model.

the fuel pump could actually be malfunctioning. and the reason that you are able to restart and drive again is because when you turn the key on it is allowing the fuel pump to pressureize your system. but while the fuel pump is continuasly running it is loosing the fuel pressure. this is common on the cheap fuel pumps. i am not sure about were you got the fuel pump from but in all of my experiances with this problem i find that the fuel pumps have been boughten at a napa store.
i hope this helps you out.
and you could attach a fuel pressure gauge on to the fuel rail and start the car and watch the pressure to see if it is droping.

i had the same problem and replaced the fuel pressure regulator. Cost about $45 at advance auto store or about $90 at napa auto stores. Once i replace that my truck started right yup and runs like a champ
