Thread: SEA FOAM
05-21-2008, 05:04 PM #1
gonna try runnign this thru my XPDI and GTX SC, after i burn the first tank of old gas thru.
any thought on adding it directly to the TB via supercharger and air intakes in the DI???
looks like instructions tell you to directly inject it into intakes for cleaning and also add some to the crankcase oil???
anybody doing that???
- With engine warm, slowly pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint through carburetor or throttle body throat. (If vehicle is port injected slowly pour SEA FOAM through direct manifold vacuum line that will feed all cylinders, possible sources are P.C.V. valve or brake booster line.) This will pull SEA FOAM down on top of the pistons and to the back of the intake valves to dissolve carbon. Turn ignition off. Restart engine after 5 minutes. If severe carbon build up is apparent, use more Sea Foam as previously directed. Make sure exhaust is well ventilated when using Sea Foam in these various ways as fumes will be extreme for a short time.
- Pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint into oil crank case to clean rings, lifters, dirty parts and remove moisture.
- Pour 1/3 to 1 full pint into fuel tank to clean injectors, carburetor jets, fuel lines and remove moisture.
- Immediate Results: Smoother idle, increased R.P.M.'s better throttle response and improved performance. See label on can for detailed results for use in each area.

Alex, no worries bro, if your going to use it just add it to the tank, if will flow thru the injectors that way. using the other method by sucking in thru vac port will just pull it thru the intake and not injectors.
also follow correct ratio...

I use the SeaFoam, but have only put it in the gas tank on my skis. I have used it in automotive applications through PCV hoses and it works GREAT for removing carbon.

When Added to Crankcase (Oil)
- Frees sticky lifters and rings
- Increases R.P.M.'s vacuum and compression
- Cleans dirty parts
- Removes moisture
- Cleans PCV valve systems
When Added to Fuel Tank
- Cleans fuel injectors and carburetor jets
- Cleans carbon as you drive
- Lubricates upper cylinders
- De-ices and removes moisture
- Diesel full conditioner and anti gel
- Stabilizes fuel

i got a few bottles of techron, is that the same stuff, for a 4STROKE.
i heard you cant use techron in a 2stroke, like the DI.
so seafoam for the DI...

IMHO, I wouldn`t have spent the money on the products, just would have burned off most of the fuel and add fresh...

my local marina is a family friend he uses the stuff in his skis, and will share a bottle with me i am sure, i only spent 4 dollars on a bottle of techron, cuz i thought that was extra special for the 4strokes...

I use SeaFoam in the RXP in the spring. Add a bottle of it to the first fill up in the spring and it works just fine........

For injector cleaner you can't buy anything better at your local store than Techron.
As far as the Seafoam goes I use it to clean carbon and man does that stuff work. Some engines are worst than others but when they smoke like they are on fire you know it had a lot of carbon build up.
My old dodge 318 was terrible but after a cleaning it ran way better.
Both products have been proven on many boards such as ours many times over.
