Electric fuel pump for street use

Post  JBR-3 on December 7th 2015, 6:18 pm

Need recommendations for an electric fuel pump, carbureted motor.
Under 700 horse (well under), street driven. A quiet pump would be nice.

I want to use an external pressure regulator, and recirc line back to the tank.

So the pump doesn't need to be internally regulated (or CAN'T be internally regulated).

The Holley or Quick Fuel bypass regulator should be fine, they are around $80.

Having trouble finding/deciding on a pump. I don't really mind too much pump
as long as it's not "way too much".

I want to add that I am leaning towards using 3/8 ID line for both the supply and return lines.

What are folks using ?

A1000 pump 10AN feed to Reg from there its 8AN to carb and 8AN back to cell pressure set at 5.5psi.... on big block car.

Small block car is the same other than feed and return lines.

Never had a problem with aeromotive stuff

no pump advice but my experience with 3/8s lines tell me to just run the braided shit and be done. I spent hours and multiple lines trying to make the lines look like they belonged on the car. waste of time and money. it wound up costing the same as the braided line stuff. the new push lock stuff is even cheaper besides. bobn

The Aeromotive stuff is usually fine for a lot of street/street-strip/bracket/hot rod/street rod/a little nitrous/etc stuff. But when/if things get big-time serious in the future then step up to a MagnaFuel pump.

If you're upgrading the pump you might as well step up to a 1/2 main feed line over the 3/8 stuff. Especially if the fuel cell/tank is staying in the back of the car.

I run this on a '68 coupe with a big inch small block and it's been great. While the car isn't a daily it sees plenty of street cruising miles. It's loud but has been flawless

Aeromotive does look pretty good.

Now I'm inclined to step up a bit, get one of their regulators and a pump.

Anyone use the A750 pump? there is a black version and a red version, not sure of the difference.

We use aeromotive stuff for almost everything.  Up to blown alcohol pro mods with their new billet pumps.  I would use an aeromotive pump over magnafuel any day of the week.
