    If there's room for a mechnical pump I'd use the stock item. You could use one of the uprated ones like an Edelbrock if you were worried about not having enough delivery.

    I've used the small Facet cube electric pump with success in the past. Cheap and reliable.

    Carter. Doesn't need a regulator and quieter than a holley red-top. Still best to rubber-mount it though.

    Most american parts places will have them or will get 'em.

    Adey, how much do sell em for. I'm in the market for a P4594 (I think).
    72 gph vane pump??

    I'm having trouble with fuel delivery, the electric pump I currently have seems to run out of breath when the secondries open or if I'm on a long incline on the motorway. This meant a slow run at no more than 55-60 mph all the way to Shakey and back along with a barrage of pi55 taking from the lads I cruised up and back with.. The history of the pump is a bit vague but it was bought as a spare for a mates RV8 but I'm running a 318 mopar with a 600 Holley and Edelbrock performer inlet.

    The Carter seems to be the recommended pump by all I've spoken to about my woes.

    Definately go for a carter in my opinion. Tried several facet pumps, both interrupter type (yeah right) and cubes, all are noisey and vibrate like hell (even on the 'proper' rubber isolators. Used carter rotary vane pumps in a few vehicles now and would never go back to a facet...
