Question Electric choke or manual choke carb ?

I own a 68 camaro with a 400 small block and i am getting a new Edelbrock 4 barrel put on. I'd like advise on carbs please. First is Edelbrock 4 barrel a good choice and what is the difference between electric or manual choke ? thanks

Re: Electric choke or manual choke carb ?

ideally, i'd use a hot air style choke.
but since that's not really an easy option, then the electric is the way to go. get it set up right, and your car will start up as good as anything with efi and run perfect right away.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Novaderrick is right. I have a edelbrock 650 TVS e/choke it runs perfect out of the box. I run a real hot solid cam and she idles 750rpm all day long. Very streetalbe.

Re: Electric choke or manual choke carb ?

Difference is with the electric choke all you do is hook up a hot wire from fuse block(ignition on) to the choke. On the manual you either run a choke pull cable that you adjust from inside the car or make a piece of wire to hold the choke at a set position. I would go with an electric choke. Depending on how the temp outside changes you may only have to set it once.
