Demon Carburetors has been in the aftermarket automotive game for over a decade now, and with good reason. The company’s dedication to launching products that are better and more unique than others within the marketplace has cemented the brand’s elite status. After more than a decade, nothing has changed, as Demon Carburetors set the standard in looks, performance and technology with the newest addition to their carburetor line; the Street Demon Carb.
The all-new Street Demon redefines the street carburetor with clean looks and ease of use! The Street Demon offers enthusiasts a straightforward carburetor designed to deliver a stable idle, amazingly crisp throttle response, and smooth performance. Its optimized calibration and dual mounting pattern make it Run–Ready for a large variety of engines and vehicles.
Today we used a 625Cfm carburetor on our mild small block, which was perfect for our needs. Don’t always think that bigger is better; if you have too much fuel for your engine the engine will flood and or respond sluggishly. You always should take your cam, pistons, and horsepower into consideration, as this is key when picking out the size of your carburetor for your engine. Now check out how we upgraded our mild small block engine with the new Street Demon carb.
1. Wicked Power out of its box.
2. This upgrade will be a hard one to see, but it will definitely be felt in the response of the engine, once it is dialed in.
3. The old carb was pulled off to make room for the new carb.
4. This Impala was ready to be upgraded with the latest carburetor technology.
5. This new 625Cfm performance street carb was just what this mild 350 engine was asking for.
6. This carburetor came with all the gaskets necessary to be bolted on.
7. We installed the first gasket on the carburetor flange.
8. The carb spacer was next.
9. This last gasket will help prevent any air leaks between the intake and carb.
10. The billet cast carb was ready to be installed.
11. Make sure to have washers to keep your carb from coming loose and causing an air leak.
12. Evenly apply the same tension on the carburetor bolts to help create even pressure on the gaskets.
13. The electric choke was plugged in as most aftermarket carburetors are wired similarly.
14. The single 3/8-fuel line was plumbed to the carburetor.
15. This carburetor was almost ready to fire up. Even without running, this carburetor made the engine look like a winner.
16. The last thing to connect to the Demon carb was the linkage and kick down cables.
17. This engine was ready to be tuned before it hit the streets with its new performance street carb from Demon.
