I changed the name of your thread, simply saying "Edelbrock" doesn't catch many fish.

Yeah, you can, but why would you want to? Manual chokes are cool 'cause you always know the position of the choke plate. I used to mount a microswitch on the linkage that would light a small light on the dash to remind me that the choke was pulled on.

I thought electric was better. I guess I will keep it manual then.

Im pretty sure you can. I dont know what car or setup you have, but on my 1971 Charger, the black wire goes to ground, and the red wire I put on the hot side of the ballast resistor.

Yes, you can easily change an Edelbrock Performer carb to electric choke. You get rid of that inflexible extra cable hanging out of the firewall with a single wire you can hide anywhere along with a ground back to the housing body. The 'kit' from Summit is (was?) about $45. My 'new' 600cfm 1405 has the mod though I actually 'stole' it from a well used 1406. It works fine though is fussy for initial set up (the carb IB needs to be followed for that setup):
