We ran a Willy's alcohol carb all year last year and didn't have any problems other than the metering block gaskets started to get eaten up by the alcohol. But thats going to happen with any carb.

Ill tell you I worked on a car with a Willys and it had the willys vacuum return log thing, and had nothing but problems with it
years before I worked on a car with a C&S billet carb and never had problems. That is what Im going with this year.
the willy easy jet change is nice but how many times do you change jets in a alky carb

We are on our 3rd season with ours. Sent it in to get freshened. Just got it back, bolted it on and fired right up. I am happy with ours.

Im trying to decide if the $1100 is worth it or spend half of that on a demon. I know lots of people with demons that love em. I am looking for a trouble free carb and i like the whole jet change with the willys. Any other pros and cons?

We ran a Demon for four seasons, and toward the end, put the car on a dyno and ended up having to modify the metering blocks. The Demon is gone, and will be replaced with a Willy's carburetor. At a big race, go around the pits and see what the fastest cars have bolted to their manifold, and this may help you like it helped me.

I had a Demon and I had nothing but problems with it. It was junk. I went to a Stealth Carb. and loved it. Ended up needing to rebuild the Stealth and I just haven't got around to it. So right now my car has a C&S on it. Its a very good carb. also. There are alot of people around my area that don't like C&S, but I've never had a problem with mine. Most of the "Big-Dogs" around here are running Stealth Carbs.
