which Carburetor would you use? Demon v. Edelbrock

Hello, I have a 350cui Chevy Vortec Small Block engine. This engine is
going in a 1947 Chevrolet car and I am going to cruise it (no drag
racing). I am in search for a Vortec style intake manifold and carburetor.
Regarding the carburetor, which one would you recommend between the
Barry Grant Demon Jr 625 cfm or the Edelborck 600 cfm 1406 w/ electric
choke??? Thanks.

If your just going to use it to cruise then the edelbrock will work fine. but if your going to put any kind of performance to it i'd go with the demon.

great, thanks...there is a $20 price difference, being that the demon is more expensive.

i personally dont like Ede. carbs, but it may work just fine for you. for a stock street application youll probably be fine...but I personally would pay the 20.00 differance for anything else

I would say if its only for the street and just a little fun driving, the Edelbrock
carb should be fine. If you do plan on any other mods in the feature I would spend the extra $20.00

Do a search on this site under "Demon", then do one under "Edelbrock", "AFB" or something like that. Compare what folks here say about their experiences with a NEW E-brock & BG carb. That may help you decide. Also, if you decide on the BG Demon,Jr. make sure it's compatible with your cam specs.

No carb is tuned out of the box.

Camaroman is right....some are more forgiving than others...but doesnt mean they are tuned.

This one was defective. They left a plug out of the base. I about went nuts trying to figure out why this thing kept getting richer and richer. Then the other day a peice of the choke linkage broke and jammed the thing wide open. I had to kill the engine to stop the car.

Carburetors

All carburetors will require tuning out of the box in order to perform properly on a combination. Regardless of brand you need to make sure the carburetor you go with is appropriate for your combination. We'd need to know more about your combination to know specifically which Demon carburetor is going to work best.
