I have a one on my old motor, only thing I can think of for you, BG recomends to run a little higher fuel pressuer then holleys or other. I believe they are optimal at 7-8psi while others can be recomended 5-7. check with them for your carb because I think it ranges slightly from speed demon to road demon to mighty demon, etc. other then that I have had good luck with mine since Ive owned it.

Had an alcohol 825 race demon we ran. Found that the needle and seats would not flow as good as an old set we had in a Holley we were using. Changed them out (both were .150"), picked up about 30hp by that alone checking on the dyno. Ran great and was easy to predict on the motor we had. We put on a Ron's injector and didn't pick of a hundredth. I really liked it and wish we wouldn't have gotten rid of it even though there is no comparison to the throttle response of the injector.

I'm glad to see all the positive input about Demon carbs, so I'll be the bad apple. I have had 3 different Demons and everytime I changed out for a Holley my cars always ran better. Maybe I don't know what I'm doing but track times don't lie. And I always swapped for the same size Holley carb that I had in the Demon. Just my exprience with these. But I will say I love the looks of them

Yes the parts are interchangable. I've heard that the jets flow a bit different so if you use Holley jets stick with Holley, Demons then stick with Demons.

Demons also work better with a bit more advance than a similar Holley. I have no idea why, they just do.

You either love them or hate them or love to hate them.

Most folks that I hear complain about them is when it comes to the idle circuit and the fact they run fat. If you remember to throw some more advance in there and the fact they all have four corner idle screws then you should be fine.

Yes i did notice that it seemed to run somewhat fatter than the holley, this is on a small block dyno at 591 hp, i think i will try it, carbs aren't hard to swap out. thank you for your help, this is my first demon.
