I think you've picked the two extremes for available fuel pumps: cheap bull**** and high end overkill.
Airtex and Federal Mogul both make generic inline 12V pumps that put out 5-9psi (keep in mind, you'll need a good regulator). I won't be at work for another week so I don't have a number handy, but a quick flip through the fuel pump manufacturer's book at your local parts store should get you something that's higher quality than the crappy Mr Gasket pump, but not as expensive as the Holley Blue pump.
Forgot to add: figure out something for a safety cutoff. Either pirate an inertia switch from a junkyard Ford, or use an oil pressure cutoff. Electric fuel pumps are safety hazards in accidents and need to have a safety cutoff.
If I use a oil pressure switch, should I just use a tee where my current oil sending unit is?
Also, I'm in AZ and it's dam hot. My car when I'm in traffic gets really hot. I already have 3 electric fans, one pushing and two pulling. With a really big radiator. I do have ceramic coated headers but will wrapping them help reduce the heat in the engine compartment
