Go to the website "findbgproducts.com" From there, they can tell you all the places in your area. Most all dealerships have it.
P.S.: There are thousands of videos on youtube on Seafoaming your car-

The 'intake manifold wash' style is HORRIBLE for your engine.
Let me set the scene for you....

Years and years of driving your engine with a working PCV system. The PCV system is throwing oily vapor down your intake manifold, which it clings to the sides. Your air filter does not catch all debris, thus letting said debris cling to your intake manifold runners. Over time and heat, these particles build up and harden to carbon-like deposits. Left there, they pose no hazards to your engine except for the performance loss of reduced air flow.

Now take all those deposits, and wash them into your engine's combustion chamber.

Your rings and pistons take a nice dosage of sediment.

You have just taken life off of your engine. For what? A 'cleaning'? A cleaning that should've involved taking off the upper intake manifold?

I have no idea why people use the intake foam. Its awful.

That's a scene! I guess removing the intake would be best for cleaning and then add an oil separator to help reduce the amount of sediment that would build up in the intake.

I've removed mine for cleaning. But it's plastic and new and I pull off my TB and give it a good cleaning as well. Only 36k miles and the outer butterfly was filthy!

I also am beginning to think seafoam is a scam... Everytime I go to start after the 20 minute wait, my engine chugs and I hear something "chink" weird *** sound

I think seafoam is great and don't get me wrong I think your right but if u let that build up happen then the engine will fail anyway and to remove engine parts can take time and knowing how to. Taking care of the engine is very important from when u first get the car

So basically if you have the time/tools you should pull your intake and take a pipe brush to it. As for my car, that sediment crap won't hurt any. I put a bottle of plastidip in my tank at every oil change
