1. Electric choke- Works automatically, efficiant, clean looking.

2. Manual choke- You have to remember to engage/disengage it, hole in firewall to run cable through, sucks when cable binds, goofy looking knob mounted inside car to engage choke.

For most street applications I usually suggest electric unless you really need that total control of your choke all the time. Just my opinion.
