Thanks to Tech @ BG Guy!

I know there has been a lot of controversy and bad mouthing of Barry Grant carbs.I just want to let everyone here know that our Tech @ BG guy has been very helpful to me.I told him the specs on my Big Block powered 86 Monte Carlo SS and he gave me his recommendation of one of BG's new annular booster Mighty Demon's.It arrived today,I partially dis-assembled it for a look-see,everything was OK.Took my old Holley off,put my new Demon on,and except for one minor leak at the rear sight glass,from an O-ring not quite seated right,cranked it over,pumped it once or twice,and away she went.Idles a lot better than before,has more bottom end punch,lots of top end,good driveability,and no leaks like my old carb.Just want to let everyone know how pleased I am with my purchase.I'll probably do a little more fine tuning,but " as is " it works better than the old Holley did.The Hot Rodders Bulletin Board is very lucky to have Tech @ BG here,I'm sure he is very busy,yet he takes time to help us out! Thanks Again.Guy Hiltz

What was the reasoning behind the annular boosters?

Just curious. I have heard different versions and wonder what the truth really is.

I've heard the annulars have a better fuel atomization because of all the small holes in the inside of the booster.

Keep in mind that a lot of the "bad mouthing" of Demon carbs on this board was discovered to have been incited by the owner of a hotrodding company with an agenda to bash Barry Grant, Inc. This is discussed in this thread: unknown poster unmasked.

The company owner had been secretly registering multiple memberships on the board in an attempt to undermine Demon carbs. Fraudulently using a communication medium (such as the internet) for financial gain constitutes wire fraud, a federal offense. We have IP address data to prove this, as well as an email in which the offender confesses to this crime.

Nevertheless, while this was going on, Tech@BG kept his head held high and was respectful, polite, and professional.

I would also like to publicly thank Tech @ BG as well.
I PM'd him for a carb recommendation, and he responded in like 2 minutes - which is better service than I could have dreamed of.

I placed the order just a couple minutes ago - can't wait to try it out!

Man, I will say it over and over, Demon carbs are the best! If people would just CALL Barry Grant first and tell them there setup, they will get a carb that is right for their setup! MY 650 Speed Demon responds like fuel injection, idles like a champ, and is extremely responsive to the idle mixture screws. In other words, the perfect carb.
