Question on why my car wonít start, 2002 325i

So the other day I drove my car to my friends and got ready to leave and my car wouldnít start. Iíve replaced the fuel pump and filter, checked the fuse block where the normal fuses that go bad, and all are good. Checked fuel rail for pressure, got good pressure. Sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it started to hit, like it wanted to start. So that tells me Iím getting spark, air, and no fuel out the injectors, Iíd assume. So what should I do?

What brands are the fuel pump and fuel filter? Aftermarket pumps are junk. How long did you try to start the car after changing the pump and filter? It takes a bit of time (10 seconds, tops) for pressurized fuel to reach the fuel rail.

I bought the fuel pump from carparts.com and seems to be working fine with the eBay filter. I primed the fuel pump and filter about 5 to 6 times before I tried to start to start it. And checked the fuel rail and it shot out gas. And when I spray starting fluid in it tryís to start
