    i'm currently running a holley 110 gph mech fuel pump and it works very well with my current set up and with the dual 4bbl's fuel pressure is 7 psi at idle and 3.5 psi at 6500rpm .now i'm thinking of going to an electric fuel pump probably a holley "blue" pump will this support my set up or should i look at something else .i'm also looking at a carter "black" pump or the mallory 140 pump . i'm familiar with both the holley blue and carter black as i ran those pumps back in the late 70's early 80's

    The Holley blue pump is noisy as heck. I had one on my blown chevelle and it fed that fine. I have the Holley black pump on my camaro now, it's not as noisy as the blue.

    The Holley red/blue/black are very failure prone. We've typically seen about a year out of the newer ones before they start leaking or quiting. The HP Holleys seem better. I'd go with the Aeromotive S/S pump. It's not old school looking but works great and alot quieter than the Holleys.

    I been running the Mallory 140 for over 13 years now, never a problem. Just rebuilt it over the winter, and expect another 13 years out of it. Its a nice and QUIET pump, it feeds my 509Hp small block no problem!
