project 4ktq still won't start..

Well the saga continues...
  At first tonight it would start but only run for maybe 15 secs.  kinda run crappy and rev down even with the throttle open.  I tried adjusting the timing but that had no effect.  I pulled the glove box and checked all the connections and everything seemed to be in working order.  However, after I pulled the glove box down the engine would no longer start...  The FPR and pump are definitely working because I can hear the pump cycling and smell fuel but I am using a different FPR than what was in the car,  I am using the one from my 83 CGT and the pins are a little different but it made the pump a lot louder.
  I notice that while keying on the car the volt meter is down around 8 volts but the car cranks pretty quickly, is that possibly not enough volts to run the computer and start?  I am also a little suspect of my coil wire, the connection seemed a little loose but it isn't any different than when it was running before.  I triple checked the connection for the ign. module and it seems fine.......
  Not really sure what to do next but the car needs to run tomorrow night because I have to be out of the garage Friday.
  Any help is much appreciated.
