at my work i ordered a bottle of seafoam for my car. but before i ran it thru the engine my boss told me to look at it with our borescope. i couldnt see shit from the build up just all black. but after we ran it thru the engine.we put the scope back into the hole and we were surprised to be able to make out p72 on my pistons.

ive always been using it over the years but this the first time i actually saw with my own eyes that it did anything.

highly recommended

ive heard ur not supposed to do it on an engine( block i guess) that has a certain number of miles on it, since u have had the same block that the car came with( or i assume since u did the ls/vtec) u might want to check into how many miles is too many to do this

I used it with no problems. I sucked up a lil bit at a time and put the rest fo the bottle in my gas tank. i was happy with the results but i may do it again. I wasnt expecting that much smoke lol.

I'm gonna grab a bottle today... guys on the jeep forums are using it on jeeps with 200 even 300,000 miles on them and getting great results... only bad thing I've heard so far is 1 guy fouling a plug... Adding it to your oil is similar to using synthetic oil... both are going to clean the shit out of your engine and possible eat away at the crap thats holding your seals together.. on higher mileage engines of course..

I did my 00 Dx hatch SUNDAY. I used the brake booster and the hose that goes into the stock Fuel press. reg. I got LOTS of smoke from the tail and Even from the front of the motor by the header! Donno what the header smoke was about, but my car really does run better!

Thanks SHO!

you probably spilled some onto your header... or if not.. there is a leak in your header.
