every carb maker holley-aep-etc flows their carbs dry..demon flows is wet, if it was measured dry the 750 mighty demon is close 900, here is a few post on this, and even joe sherman has confirmed this

I picked up 3 tenths on a well sorted combo with a qft 750 over a demon 750 back to back passes, and no tuning on the qft.. 11 to 1 347 ran 10.50s.. went from 10.83 to 10.57.. Gained 2 mph and a tenth in the 60ft 5000 stall.. I will never put a demon on anyting but a project on a budget that never goes to track

same deal with me, we had a 750 demon on a 406 chebby in a 80 camaro and it went 7.42 in the 1/8th on the same day we put a 750 holley DP on it and it went 7.17 with in 1 hour of each pass so don't believe everything you read on the net!!!!!!!

If you picked up 3 tenths with just a carburetor swap then you didn't have a very well sorted combo.

I agree with you.... But their where a bunch of junk demon carbs built by Bg back in the day.... Everything from improperly drilled blocks to metal shavings in them. Ask me how I know.

Tell me about it! Earlier this week I had a customer bring in a big Chevy to run on the dyno with an 871 and two Demons which needed to be rebuilt. I took them apart and went through them and while doing so I noticed that besides some awful boosters in both bodies one body had never been drilled through to allow manifold vacuum to actuate the power valve! The holes were started but not drilled through all the way. I was told that this is not uncommon on these carburetors.

If you guys looked at the specs on Demon carbs you would wonder how they ever ran properly.
Some are really screwed up.
