electric fuel pump recommendations

OK. getting ready to set my motor in the 39 gmc pickup. When i mocked in the motor i didn't put on a mechanical fuel pump. The clearance looks real close to my frame the way the frame pinches in in the front. I may have room but if not I need some suggestions for an electric pump. 300 hp 350. I have heard in the past that the Holley's are not all that good and very noisy. Anybody use a Carter pump?

Oh yea, the pump will have to be mounted on the frame and the fuel outlet on the cell will be about 6 inches lower than the pump.

If I were you and space permits I would go with the mechanical. I`ve tried many electric pumps, my last was a carter, all of them are so loud the constant hum drove me nuts, I didn`t even use it a hour before it was back off in favor of a mechanical. If you use a electric, make sure you set the mount with plenty of rubber on it to help isolate some of the noise. also make sure it`s mounted to where it gets plenty of air so it can run cool, 6 inches lower is acceptable, just make sure it`s close to the cell as possible. You may also want to look into a fuel pressure regulator, the carter pump I had was rated at 5 psi and it put out 9.

Wiper motor bushings and a few small plates helped me live with one for a while. The quiet ones are the gerotor pumps and use a regulator with a return line to help it stay cool.
