i like the adjustability of the electric system. you set it 6psi and its there. my old mechanical pulsed the fuel. i guess you could put a regulator on the mechanical unit too, but... you would get the parasitic recovery. at higher rpms this cam add up( 4 hp? ). also the amount that the mechanical pump puts out changes over time. in a negative way. with the electric you get that return line and you can just about kiss vapor lock good bye. id say for the hundred or so more the electric is a good viable long lasting alternative. nuff said..
