It sure sounds to me like either the replacement pump is faulty or the replacement pressure regulator/filter is faulty. Did you buy new parts and/or have any difficulty replacing those parts?

The pump is good the fuel filter regulator were easy to put in with no hiccups this is the second pump I took the first one back to napa because I thought it was faulty and they swaped it out for a new one no questions asked

The fact that the fuel pressure drops to zero instantly indicates probable bad check valves in both the regulator/filter and fuel pump. The attachment, copied from the 04 FSM, justifies that conclusion.
Unless the pressure measurements are really inaccurate, I have to think that the regulator and pump are probably bad, or they were not the correct parts to begin with, or they were not installed correctly. There are ways to check them out individually, but IMO a visit to a professional who has the correct equipment may be a necessary expense for the needed accurate diagnostic help. Good luck!
