Need Help on my 1978 Camaro, Intake/Carb
HI all, Juice here,, My question:

I have a 1978 Camaro Z28, which when I bought it, had a 2 barrel intake and Carb. I switched the intake with a 4 barrel Intake and about to install my new Overhauled Rochester Quadrajet carb on it. This carb has an electric Choke, but the original setup on my car was not, it was setup with the choke being controlled by the intake. I am wondering how do I wire this Carbs choke to work via Electric. I am not sure if I have the plug for the Hot/Ground wires. I have access to a Camaro that was setup with an electric choke, do I find the wire that was plugged into it, and install it on mine? Like on Edelbrock carbs with Electric chokes, where you just ground and then setup the Hot wire to the Ignition? Please if someone who maybe have dealt with this, Or know how to fix it, Please let me know, I would appreciate it.

Run the hot wire to a switched HOT on the fuse panel. Be sure it's hot only in the ON position and not the aux position on the key. If there is a ground wire you may use one of the carb's mounting bolts.
