What are the most common symptoms? I don't know if i'm just having a intercooler leak or a dead pump. Car starts.. Idles for like 1 second and dies.

One SC I had was getting hard to start. Then it finally just didn't start. This took the course of a couple weeks.

Another SC was just dying intermittently. I would be cruising at 30 mph, then the car dies. It would sometimes start right up, sometimes not. That wasn't a fuel pump problem, but was a melted harness that the fuel pump connects to.

I don't think fuel pumps take very long to die. Most times they are fine, then one day just aren't fine anymore.
