Unless you're turning a lot of rpm and suffering from fuel starvation problems I'd stick with the original mechanical pump. If you go to an electric then you would most likely need a pressure regulator as well, just added expense in my opinion.

I decided to stick with the mechanical one, the electrics are just too noisy.
