Opened them - and they're all blank! Both pairs undrilled, and no sizes stamped on them. Why label the packaging with a jet size if they're blanks? Is this normal, or is it good 'ol BG quality control again? Two different packs?
Think of the gas mileage you'll get, LOL.

Some years ago I purchased a road demon Jr. from Summit. After some issues (such as CNC machining trash in the circuits) it served me well.
One thing I quickly learned about demon carbs. They aren`t so simple as bolt on and go as many carbs say. You have to read the book that comes with them and learn how to tune them correctly to your application.
Many carbs are forgiving to tuning errors and the demon carb is not.
The only thing I disliked about the carb was down leg boosters on the primary which made it a little on the lazy side. It had annular boosters on the secondary side and when I kicked it in the power it made was incredible, it felt like the car had been kicked in the rear with a giant foot.
Now days I only run Q-jets, but if I was to buy another carb it would be a Demon. I stopped using Holley`s after dealing with very poor quality control. I used to have a 600 holley and after possibly 10 WOT runs, the secondary bushings were completely worn out, I found they were 2 cent plastic pieces and nobody at the time including Holley carried a replacement for. Other times I bolted on new Holley`s on others rides to find no gaskets on the bowls or O gaskets on the bowls bolts. So its true, all companies have quality issues. But what I said is especially true, any company that says a carb is "bolt on and go" is pure BS. You have to tune the carb to the application regardless, cause every engine is different.
