I don't believe you have enough fuel pressure. 48 PSI will work for the old TBI system, but I believe the 96 vortec uses the MFI system that requires 63 psi. I did a similar swap with a 98 L31 into a 91 Sonoma, and had to replace the in-tank fuel pump. Once I got the higher pressure it fired just fine.
