How to add an electric choke

Do you have a broken heat choke tube?

Did you block off your heat riser?

Does your new intake not have a provision for the choke tube?

Tired of fighting with that choke system?

Then add an electric choke.

Simply remove the old hot air choke and tube.

Then replace it with a new electric choke

Be sure to leave out the gasket (that is where the ground comes from).

Set the choke so it just closes when cold.

Hook the wire up to a 12v source that is on ONLY with the ignition.

I used the HEI lead to the coil.

Now you are ready to roll!
