The only intermittent fuel pump related problem that I had was related to the wiring at the luggage compartment fuse block. I ended up placing a more modern fuse holder in place. Knock on a forest of wood, but this fixed my problem:

So I pushed it into its spot and pondered what it may be at first I thought it could be a DME relay or fuel pump relay. Well last night I finally got some time to take a good look at it and after taking the fuel pump relays out of the equation I got out my multimeter and started looking at fuses. I found that the fuel pump fuse was burnt and the fuse box connections to be corroded and chared also. No other fuses have any isssues and all the rest of the wiring looked good to. After a little research I found that the original aluminum fuses tend to corrode and for some reason it looks like it was arcing in the fuse box and finally chared enough to break the connection. After I bypassed the fuse block temporarily and put power to the fuel pump the car started right up. I guess my question is if anyone else has had this issue also with the factory fuses? Needless to say I have a new set of brass and copper fuses on their way to my door so that I dont have this issue again.
