    i run the holley red pump...mainly because the block has no provision for a mechanical pump....found out by accident that if you add seafoam to a tank of gas it makes the red pump quiet as hell....for a while

    Don -
    Do you plumb the Jeggs pump inline with the mechanical pump, or do you install a bypass line so the mechanical pump doesn't have to pull through the electrical pump?

    I bought a Holley 12-125 geroter style pump and like it. I had an Aeromotive vane style and the racket was a non starter with me. The Holley has a quiet mum mum mum sound and doesn't require a regulator for carb applications

    don't forget the Facet pumps, they are inline pumps and have been around forever, many of them will also dry lift fuel 24 inches out of a top outlet tank.

    I use a $30 universal pump from Advance auto. Puts out 8 PSI, regulate it down to about 3-3.5 PSI. Can't hear it run, they last for years. I used the same pump for about 8 yrs and was getting a bit noisy, told the counter guy I was taking a trip and he said bring it in & I'll give you a new one. Probably been 7-8 yrs on that one.
