Electric fuel pump

Hi
I'm in the process of putting a 350 in my 26T. It had a 4 cyl with one of those little square elec fuel pumps, I forget what brand,but Mr Gasket makes one . Are those type pumps OK to use with a mild 350? If not what kind of elec pump is recomended with out cleaning out the bank acount? Also how close to the tank should it be and should a filter be before or after the pump?.Do they all need a regulator?
Thanks

All of 'em are noisy if you bolt 'em to the frame or sheetmetal.

Put a filter between the tank and the pump and another one just before the carb inlet.
Holley will take 6 lbs max, Edelbrock likes 5 1/2 max.

Thank you
My tank will be in the trunk and the fuel line comes out of the top of the tank with an-8 fitting should I mount the pump in the trunk or down on the frame? Will it hurt to use the an-8 line to the pump and then 3/8 out of the pump? I'm surprised to see a filter before the pump I always thought they went after the pump?
