Default Best way to hook up Electric Choke

What is the best way to hook up an electric choke? I did a search but didn't find anything that useful. I just know that I need to put it on a 12V source that only has current when the car is actually running. Where is the best place to do this?

I was thinking the coil, but then I read that is only roughly 9V when running. What are other options that are effective and look aesthetically pleasing?

Here's info on my setup - 351w, p/s, no AC, Edelbrok 650cfm carb. What are my options for the choke setup? We are almost to the point to start the car, just a few more things to check off the list.

You can hook it up to your alternator

Personally I wouldn't hook it up in the first place. Assuming that the hot air line from the exhaust heater is in place.

However the proper source is the stator terminal of the alternator.

Thanks guys.

Where should I hook the heater blower motor up to? We know where the ground goes but not sure on the power...when we got the car it was disconnected with the wire cut off.
