Barry Grant opinions

need a few peoples views on the Barry Grant Mighty Demon 750 d/p. I'm thinking of replacing the old 800 d/p with something a bit fresher. Whos used them and are there any issues with them, Thanks.

Re: Barry Grant opinions

G'day mate . I run a 750 Race Demon and they are a pretty good out of the box carb. Need a few tweeks hear and there but still good to start with. I have a mate running a 650 Mighty Demon on a 308 cub holden with a 100 shot on it and he is running 10.3's on the 1/4 in a 3000 pound car and his is out of the box !!! That should say enough !!!

Yep, i've used Barry Grant carbies for the last 6 years and all good. I got rid of the 850DP, for a Mighty Demon 750 nearly 2 years ago.

I had an 850 DP on my 351 Windsor. Have now got 750 Mighty Demon, revs out clearer and has heaps better bottom end.

Re: Barry Grant opinions

More adjustments, can get sleeves to make them larger instead of buying a bigger carb.

Yes, as in say the 750 works, then you change to a bigger cam that requires more cfm you can turn the carb into a 850 for example, save buying a different carb every time you change something, i'm on my 4th now.
