Demon Carburetion has introduced six new-and-improved four-barrel carburetors in the following sizes: 650, 750, and 850. Each size is available in two forms, three are equipped with mechanically operated secondary throttle plates, and the remaining three with vacuum-operated secondaries. Vacuum-secondary Speed Demons are instantly recognizable by the red billet aluminum cap on the vacuum pod.
The 650 model performs at its best on mildly tuned engines with displacements of 302-427 ci. The larger 750 Speed Demon works exceptionally well on 393- to 477-cid engines and excels on mildly tuned engines from 427-455 ci. The largest carburetor of this new Speed Demon range, the 850, is particularly well suited for operation on big-block crate motors, ranging in displacements from 488-540 ci.
