Edelbrock Quite Flows work great for electric fuel pumps, but unless you are running a radical set up or EFI you can just install a mechanical pump.

Sounds like you have a lot of overheating problems, I am in So Cal as well, we just installed the Quite Flow on my dad's truck because he was having vapor lock issues due ot underhood temps. He has since had zero problems.:bigthumbsup

Sounds like the pump got hot..where is it located? i'm running one on my 86 Capri....it's currently in the trunk area, but i ran a red pump, mounted under the car,by the fuel tank in my '67 coupe.plenty of air flow. Holley fuel pumps are NOT known for running hot.They are a quality fuel pump. wouldn't worry about a relay, THEY can get real hot ans when they do, they shut the pump off.You shouldn't need that relay.
