fuel flow rate for stromberg 97s

hi all,
I was wondering if anybody could tell me, what fuel flow rate I need to run 4 stromberg 97s on a 1955 331 Hemi? Also if anybody could recomend a quieter electric fuel pump, I already have a holley blue pump but this is too loud. Does anybody know if carter fuel pumps are quieter than holleys or louder?

CFM rating for popular vintage Stromberg carbs

model 81 => 135 cfm.
model 48 => 150 cfm.
model 97 => 135 cfm.

Ask this guy for more info.

Also, did you know there is a guy making brand new 97s? tech@stromberg-97.com is their tech line and since they appear to have done a serious, scientific reverse engineering job on the carb, they would be able to tell you more that you ever wanted to know about the thing! Here is a solid model of their coming product.

Other references here and here and here.

I run Carter $60 rotary pumps on all my cars. Cheap reliable and I think they are pretty quiet when mounted w/ the supplied rubber isolation bracket and back near the tank but then no electric after-market pump will match the one in Granny and Gramp's Buick LeSabre.
