Opinions on fuel pump

Hey guys,
I'm looking for opinions on what electric fuel pump to run for my 600 hp small block. This will be a street driven vehicle so durability and reliability is a must. It doesn't need to be overkill, but I will be running a return system (carbureted) so a bit extra flow will not hurt.
Appreciate your help.
God bless.
Jason

I second the magnafuel, get the 500 pump with the built in filter, last one you'll ever buy.

I've used the Holley "VOLUMAX" pumps; usually the 180 GPH model though they do have a 225 GPH model for over 1000 HP. They require two input lines from the tank or "Y" the pump inlets to one.
It also requires at least a 5/16" return line.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I just spent quite a bit on ignition components, gonna have to do a little saving for the fuel system. Don't even have the engine done yet, but it'd be a shame to have a complete new motor that can't go in the car because the car isn't set up for it yet! Anyway, thanks again guys, I appreciate it!
