Need Help/Advice re In-Tank Fuel Pump!!

Am installing a POWERJECTION III TBI system on my '63 T'Bird 390 (.030" overbore, MLF-4 Cam, FPA Headers). STRICTLY A CRUISER.

Which of the following (if either) IN-TANK electric fuel pump would you guys recommend (hopefully based on actual first-hand knowledge/experience)?





I am installing in a NEW tank, fuel line, return line, etc. so have some flexibility re installation.

THANX in advance for your advice and help!!

I'm not a big fan of in-tank pumps, only because of the extra time & work if up-grading or replacing. So when the pump went south on my truck I used a Holley in-line and completely removed the in-tank pump & replaced it with a pick-up tube & installed the sock on the end of it. The pump is attached to the frame below the tank in order to create a siphon. I also fabricated some sheet metal around the pump to protect it from being hit by flying road debris. Now if I were to need a new pump or more pressure for whatever reason, I don't have to remove the tank.

In tank for me.Iím using an Aeromotive A 1000. Watched my bud go through 2 of the Eliminator Series ($$) before he put his in the tank.Heat was the only thing we can contribute it to. No problems since.Just make sure the pump is mounted lower than the tank.If not,it may cause stall issues.
