Electronic or Heat Choke

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question

I'm after heat riser pipes for my Thermoquad (the pipes that wrap around the manifold and drive into the carbie for the auto choke). Does anyone know where I can get them custom made or new in the Eastern Suburbs at all? I was told the choke can be controlled electronically rather than with the thermo risers. Can anyone elaborate on this? And any idea how much this may cost for either the custom pipes or electronic choke system.

PS: Wreckers aren't the go for the pipes (always rusted) and Ford discontinued them a while back.

Also, to whom that might be wondering, the thermoquad was a much better option than the Holley. My mechanic has no troubles tunning them (wonderful, ACE Autos Croydon VIC), but the rebuild cost heaps. It's all worth it though!!!

Re: Electronic or Heat Choke

Some tubing like brake pipe works. Or call into Pertec etc but it has to be bendable !!Soft...
Electronic choke ??? It usually has to be built for one from factory. Retro fitting?? I dont think you can ???
