Aeromotive A1000 is a good pump that isn't a million dollars,and it will support more power than you're looking for so there is room to grow.

I'd go with an Aeromotive of some sort. I was very pleased with their customer service when I had a problem with an A2000 pump.

I've had good luck with the Holley HP125 and HP150 pumps.

I'm still running Two Mallory comp 140 fuel pumps. Both over 20 years old and they just won't quit. Geo Rotor Designed like an oil pump so they will last "forever". Key to keeping them alive is to keep your fuel clean with a good filter before the pumps.

holley or summit black pump should do ya with a holley regulator. 6psi fuel pressure.
Just make sure the pump is fed from a rear sump tank and the pump mounted flush or below the tank.
These pumps are not pullers.  They are pushers.

I was running an engine driven pump

Post  manofmerc on March 26th 2016, 5:36 am

I had a big carter mech.then I went with a holley 130gph mechanical pump it would run out of gas right after the end of the 1/8 mile marker .This happened after I went from a performer rpm air gap intake to a victor .I bought the holley electric black pump. I believe it is 140 gph .It costs a little more than a holley blue but has more gph .It is really for alcohol But works fine with regular gas. I run aluminum 3/8 fuel line and A.N. fittings .I don't have 600-650 hp maybe 500-550 maybe not a fair comparison but close as I can get .On a good day it will go 120mph @3400lbs.Lot of fuel pumps for 600 hp engines Quick fuel has a couple of nice ones too.Doug

I think I'm going after it with a few setup changes this spring.
Taking the heavy full 4" exhaust off for 70 pounds reduction. Add an air pan, chin spoiler, and block off the grill. I should know in 3 weeks.
Thanks for the compliments.

X2,that's what i run and have had good luck with them.Plus you can buy rebuild kits for them from Summit Racing or Jegs.

I use an Edelbrock 160GPH electric fuel pump, so far so good. Complete 8AN fuel system from the tank to the bowls.

Best bang for buck....
I used a Holley Blue with return style regulator running through 1/2 fuel lines to 1150 carb. 10.86 in 3800lb street car.

On my dyno I've been using two Holley black pumps for at least 10 years and they've always worked well. It is a simple system, a 5/8 fuel hose splits to the pumps which then feed into a single 5/8 that goes to a canister fuel filter that was scavenged from a Detroit Diesel at the junk yard(no joke). In that filter I have a Wix "any fuel" filter element. After that it goes up to the carburetor area where I have an aluminum fuel log with four fittings, two -6 and two -8 and then on the end of that log I have a return style regulator from BLP. The regulator has a small jet which allows a little fuel/air to bypass all the time even if the regulator is closed. Extra fuel returns back to the tank through a 3/8 hose. This is great because it allows the air to purge immediately which is handy when changing fuels or switching stuff around.

I think that having the bypass regulator setup really helps with these pumps because then they only build the pressure that's needed rather than run dead headed and against their internal regulator which is about 15psi. My pumps are pretty quiet and they don't get hot even after running steadily for hours.

I think too that it might be important and better to have a system that doesn't beat on the fuel too much and that having the fuel come through a regulator and suddenly go from high to low pressure might cause some light ends to flash, changing the fuel. I'm not sure that really happens but it could.

I run the pumps with two switches, one is a momentary "bump" switch that's used to fill the bowls and check for leaks. The other is the "run" switch that's a toggle on or off. The run switch is generally left on and the pumps are controlled using a 30 amp accessory relay and a Holley pressure switch that's wired so that when there is oil pressure the pumps turn on, no pressure they turn off, automatically. Very simple.

I just recently ran a big Ford than made 1029 horsepower on gasoline on this dyno with no problems what so ever, 7 psi from start to finish. Since there are no inertia effects I wonder how much power could be fed in a typical drag racing application with this same system?

Also, these pumps have been run with all grades of regular pump gas, E10, E85, racing gasolines and methanol without problems.
