not sure if its safe to have it sucked down the intake of a turbo'ed car, ran it through the vacuum lines on my 2000 celica with 70k+ miles on it, worked great

really it depends on your cars milage and level of dirty inside the engine. and also how you apply it, are you gonna suck it through the vac line into the intake? dump some in your gas tank? more detail please.

at the least the amount of smoke it blows is a ton of fun while it lasts..

Never-the-less we should always do a search FIRST. A search saves much repeat clutter on the site and I presume there is some limit to the server capacity.

If that was an issue, they'd get rid of the OT.

Be careful. Seafoam has a lot of punch if you use it wrong. You can hydro the cylinders by directly putting it into a vacuum line. Berryman's B-12 Chemtool is what I use for a liquid fuel/top end cleaner. It has just as good of additives and it is a lot cheaper.

But, be careful where you use the liquid stuff. It is really best to just put it in the tank unless you really know where to put it in a vacuum line to suck it into the engine.

I put 1/3 can into oil, let it run for 5 minutes. let it sit for another 5, run it for 5 more, then change the oil. I've red people driving with it in the oil, I'd rather not try that.
Put the next 1/3 in the gas tank
let the last 1/3 get sucked up by the PCV valve. let it run for 5 minutes, let it sit for 10 -15, then go drive and smoke out the neighborhood.

Thats gotta be good for at least 75whp
