    Gear drive, especially if it's MFI. The gear drive front cover is the best way to drive the fuel pump.

    Gear drive > chain. The more you can eliminate the chance for unnecessary damage the better. (For example, a timing chain getting loose and slapping around behind the cover).

    Gear drive all the way, timing is precise and they really don't seem to wear out. Best wishes
