It will soften the blow but may not be enough. Why do you expect it to idle cold, without a choke, at the same idle speed as when it is warm?? It never will. Without a choke and fast idle cam on the carb, a hot rod engine will never idle without you "babysitting" the gas pedal. You are expecting too much.
