Chokes on dual quads:  Only one carb has a choke.  The forward carb acts
like 2 extra sets of secondaries.  Every bore is set up in progression and
a pain to tune in properly.  Unless you have an engine capable of making
tremendous amounts of horsepower, they are usually a waste of time and
energy.  However, they look really cool.  Most guys I knew that had them on
421 & 455 Pontiacs ended up blocking one off, and still enjoyed the look.
