Undo the vac line running to the bpv and go through that! That's what I use.

Don't worry about which one, as long as it goes to the center of the IM. The vacuum from the engine will draw the fluid into the engine, not anything else. BPV is also what I used.

Unplug an existing hose from the IM. Plug in your own hosein to the intake mani port.. No need to pour. With the engine running let engine vacuum draw the seafoam into the engine. It will suck it right up. If you have no vacuum in the line sucking up the seafoam you know your doing it wrong.
