I think Stewart is good, I ran one. But on their stage two pump they lower the pump shaft just a little which can cause some pulleys to touch sometimes. I talked to Stewart and they said that is the number one complaint at the time.
I currently run a Edelbrock pump and it is a great pump, plenty of flow and zero problems for three years now.

I had been thinking on the Edelbrock. Its plenty pricey, Alot more than the stocker that I ran years ago. Zero problems with it and a Griffin radiator. This car will have A/C thou.

I like the Edelbrock pumps for any street driver type engines

I have the Edelbrock Victor 8811 pump. No problems with it. The Summit pulley that sits on it and is drilled off centre haven't managed to kill it yet either.
