Regarding your plugs, if you feel confident they're good, return the ones you bought. All I suggest is pulling a couple plugs to see if they're fouled. It helps in diagnosing your problem.
OK, so fuel pump is replaced, and you feel certain the plugs and the rest of the ignition system are good? When you turn the key on (but not start it), do you hear the fuel pump run for a second? If not, you've got an electrical problem. This could be something as simple as a fuse, or a relay not kicking over like it's supposed to.
I've posted a bunch of stuff on your fuel system in the "online resources" portion of the forum. If nothing else, it might assist with troubleshooting and familiarization of your car.
Not that I'm telling you to replace it, but have you checked the fuel filter?
How long did the car sit before you bought it?
Also, check the connections to the computer - it's located in the passenger side engine bay, front. If there's no power to THAT thing, your car will never run...
