Fuel pump relay and electric choke

Hey guys,
I'm replacing my '89 Camaros TBI 305 with a carbed 383. I found an unused rear defogger connector in my dash wiring that would make for a very convenient toggle switch location on the dash just below the lighter. Could I use this connection for power to both the fuel pump relay AND the electric choke, just by running jumper wires through the firewall to these components? The pink/black wire in this connector pigtail has power only in the run position, not in accessory. Vehicle wiring is not my strong point, so the simpler the better. Thanks for input & info!

I don't see why not, those rear defoggers take a lot of juice, 30 amp possibly.

I'd try to run the car without the choke..

Upon closer inspection, maybe I could toggle switch the always hot (12 ga) orange/black wire (its on a 35 amp circuit breaker)? The pink/black is an 18 ga wire stemming from the 'hot in run' 10 amp gages fuse. Or is this overkill? I have no idea what the choke heater requirements are. I'm in AZ, so the choke may not be necessary, but I'd still rather have it functional. Thoughts?

Just run a wire from the distributor to the choke.
