Best fuel Pump

I have a 1923 T Bucket with a blown 350 running 2 Holley 600cfm carbs. The engine puts out around 550hp. It is not used for racing, just for cruising. My electric fuel pump died on me last week and I need to instal a new electric fuel pump. The old one was a Walbro and didnt work very well. I am looking for some recommendations for a good dependable pump that will handle the hp and wont be to noisy. Right now there is no return line to the fuel tank. I want to stick with an electric fuel pump.
Any input will be appreciated
Thanks,
Rich

For the street I have always had good luck and performance with Carter pumps. With a blower and twin 600 Holley's it might be enough for just cruising, or lighting em up on short burst's. Edlebrock makes one that is adjustable pressure wise, but it will hurt your wallet.

I'm using a BG 220R, it's noisey and requires the return line and inline regulator, but pumps plenty through AN-10 lines. Have you looked at the Holley Blue pumps?

Talk to MagnaFlow or Aeromotive. Best pumps out there for electric.

mallory comp 140. quiet pump. Can't hear over the engine. a 14 psi pump that comes with a regulator to mount by the carb.

or get two comp70 or comp110 and run one to each carb. even quieter than the 140's. Can barely hear even with the engine off. set at 7 psi.

comp250's are loud.

use a course filter before the pump and mount as low as possible.

Thanks for all the info. I was looking at Holley's web sight http://www.holley.com/12-125.asp and noticed they have a new electric fuel pump that will handle up to 750 hp 7psi at 110gph, It has an internal regulator set at 7psi, a bit pricey though. The price is around $180.00 Has anyone used any of these pumps? It says it is quieter than traditional vane pumps. I looked at Aeromotive pumps but they don't have any dealers here in Oklahoma. There is an auto part store here that has a Holley 12-125 in stock but I wanted to see if anyone has any experience with them
Thanks,
Rich

I ended up going with the Holley 12-125 fuel pump. I get a steady 6psI at the carbs and it runs quieter than the Walbro pump that was installed. It was a bit pricey but I also liked the chrome finish. Thanks to everyone that responded.
