Also, when the car died a couple blocks from home i cranked the starter with the transmission in gear to get up a hill. After doing this for a while the front fuel pump started running all the sudden and the car fired up. Maybe I'll order a new front pump too...
Why do you think your coil is out of spec? Your readings are similair to mine and my coil was fine!
EDIT: just checked Dans post. Strange, my car ran fine!

The fuel pumps will only turn on when air is pulled through the metering plate. I doubt you'll hear the pumps while your cranking the engine.
