    i'd go with an electric one as the gas might be a little bit cooler than with a mechanical one (depends on your fuel line routing). you can pick up a universal one at most autoparts (just make sure you get one that is about 6-8 psi, and not more than that) someone had already installed an electric one on my blazer, so i don't know what brand it is.

    Just go get a GM pump.....most of the parts store brands are crappy rebuilds.

    Another option is to eliminate the factory mechanical pump and go with an aftermarket electric pump. I did that over 8 years ago and have never had fuel delivery problem since.
