I got tired of changing out holley electric fuel pumps. Ive gone through two since June. One red and one blue . The red's motor went out and the blue lost a shaft seal. Plus they were both louder than I felt the should be. I know some of you guys have been running them for years but that hasnt been my luck in my daily driver. Did I mention they were LOUD ! Anyway I bought a mallory 110 GPH 7 PSI gerotor pump and installed it today. The mounts were the same as the holley so all I had to do was screw in the AN fittings and bolt it down. Took 20 minutes in the dark and rain . Started it up and I am in love! It hums. Thats all . It just hums . No popping or screaching ( or leaking ) . It just hums quietly. Theyre a bit spendier than the holley pumps at $150 or so but I wish I had bought one of these years ago.

You will all probably shocked to know that almost all of the high performace fuel pumps on the market today use electric motors from the same Chinese manufacturer.

I've got two Mallory 140's (pretty much same as the 110) on my car. One has been in service for around 9 years, and untold hours of use, while the other (nitrous) has been used a bit less. These are hooked up with return style regulators and Fram canister filters, and have been 100% reliable and trouble free.

The geroter style pump (same style as a Ford oil pump) is extremely efficient, and quietly hums right along. The return style regulator also holds the noise down.

If you want a fuel pump to run in almost complete silence, mount it to an exhaust hanger instead of the frame.

Good Luck!

I ran a Mallory 140 for a couple of years with no problems. I made the mistake of mounting it in the trunk without a box around it and the humming got annoying. From what I have heard it is quieter than the Holley Pumps.
