People have had all kinds of different carbs fail, and fuel pumps, and pistons, and hair dryers and refrigerator compressors and all that.

I think that people get mad at BG because they feel that they are buying a premium carb at a premium price. I am sure Holley's and goldbricks all fail at the same or close to the same percentage of the time as BG carbs but people don't expect as much because those are fairly common. (and in turn are not expected to be perfect)

I am not touting BG carbs here but I am just saying that it is human nature to be mad that your 500 dollar carb isn't working the way it should, while you might not be as mad that your 250 dollar carb isn't quite right.

Also I would recommend checking out the guy on ebay who sells reman BG's. I feel like they are more carefully inspected and tested than their "new" counterparts. (that is just a hunch though)
