    already have an holley black electric fuel pump
    for the last 10 years

    dont have any problem with it but its noisy
    I dont know if Im getting old but for a quick and short
    ride in town its ok but a for a long ride with wife and kids
    its so loud and Im tired of it

    what do you guys suggest me

    the car consist as a street and strip duster
    with 408 indy headed engine pushing close to 650
    I have 1/2 sump tank and 1/2 braided hose from the pump to the regulator
    running a 1000 cfm carbs

    I know a return style pump and regulator should be quieter
    but dont know wich one to chose from and wich one is the
    best one

    thanks Bob

    I ran Holley pumps for years. I could not stand the noise anymore. Went with a quick fuel 230 pump with bypass reg. Very quiet, bolted right to the frame. 410 Stroker solid roller w2 heads on the street.

    The quick fuel 230 pump is very similar to the Barry grant hot rod pump. Streetable and quiet. I like it, more fuel then you’ll ever need. Aeromotive would be my other choice.

    does it need a return line from the pump or from the regulator?

    Return from the reg. Also was included with my purchase of the pump.

    do you remember the size of it

    will it be important to make the return line #10 size line
    because Im using the stock OE tank

    sure I have the 1/2 sending unit but no return line to the tank yet
    what did you do to yours
    do you remember the way you installed it ?

    Same here. I have an Awromotive pump that’s gotta go. It’s just too noisy. Been looking myself for something different that’s quiet and something that will support EFI if that comes in to play down the road. The Billet in-line pumps from Holley look pretty good and sounds like they’re quiet as well.

    Anyone have one of these?

    I think the Aeromotive stealth in tank pump kits with the 340 lph pump is a really good setup. I have that same pump in my aeromotive fuel cell. Very quiet for an electric pump.
