All of the dedicated electric chokes I've seen such as those on Holley or E'brock carbs run seperately from the exhaust system. Thus them being called electric.

One thing to keep in mind, electric chokes are nice, but are totally independant from the motor temperature. Most of them start heating the coil as soon as the key is turned on and the motor not running. With the old exhaust heated style, the coil was not warmed up until the exhaust manifolds started getting hot, which meant the choke stayed closed until the motor was atleast running.

I'm still from the old school, I'll take a mechanical choke linkage anyday.
