There is also the Holley HP carb for around 650. Personally i feel for the money the Demon is the better off the shelf carb. If you want more look into Willys, Baker or even Braswell, for a custom carb. KP could hook you up as well. Just depends on how much you want to spend.

FWIW, "KP Carbs" is Kinetic Performance (me).
We are a forum sponsor as well as sponsors of numerous cars nationwide at various levels.
We have a carb for every budget and rulebook.

Hope that helps, and for more info, see our website:

Hey KP - give us your opinion of the C&S carb? Pros/cons?

Thanks

Depends which model you're talking about, but they do good work, yes. Their "aerosol" style booster technology is functional, too. Yet, nothing is without the possibility for improvement. That's what makes this business so fun! (OK, so I'm sick that way...). :-)
Seriously, their machined venturi sleeves are about the only thing not found in many other top carb builder's stuff.
They are still "behind" IMHO, in the metering block dept, however, just from those I've seen.
And my biggest tip to any potential carburetor buyer would be to pay attention to the after-sale tech support. Therein lies what will separate all carburetor suppliers from the select few who REALLY build winners.

Hope that helps some. I'm not good at talking about other builder's stuff.
It feels awkward.

FWIW I had kp go threw a old carb i had this winter and the thing has run flawless. When i do have a problem with jetting air bleeds squirters or what ever he has helped 100% and explains it so that a guy like me can adjust if needed. I also live across the usa from him and yet i still chose to have him do the work for me.

Mod75d, if you'd like, we can discuss this on the side but I do have one ready for shipment right now.
It's fresh off the wet flow bench, too, and a VERY healthy monster at that.

PM me, or email: kineticperformance@thedirtforum.com
