Not to discourage you or anything, but I've heard horror stories about seafoam on here. People argue that they didn't use it right. I recommend that you try it with someone that has experience with it. Or try watching youtube videos where the results come out good

So far it's working. Put 1/3 into the brake booster vacuum line and she smoked like a chimney. Gonna wait a couple minutes for another 1/3 then pour the rest in the tank

What i did the last time, was one full bottle in a full tank, Half a bottle in the oil and split the other half into thirds (into the brake booster line) When you put it in the oil do not let it stay in there more than 250 Miles, I'd say 100 at max anyway. On the first two thirds you want to do it slow, the last third you want to make it stall the engine out (or shut it off yourself) and wait about 20 minutes. then start it back up.

I put a can in the tank and then filled it up at the same time. It helped my warm start up issues a lot.

I used seafoam on my 96 gt and on various cars. For the stangs use 1/4 in the vacuum line next to the throttle body 1/4 in the oil the rest in the fuel tank. Didn't smoke a lot, obviously the last owner did proper maintance

Brake booster line is the best line you can run from. Its the same line a professional kit would attach to as well.

How much of a diffeence does it make after you use the sea foam? How many miles should someone is it on their car? I've got 75k on my 99 v6 and it's never had sea foam.

Brake booster line, drip it in very slowly and have a friend give the engine a few revs while your doing it. Put too much in at one time and you can hydrolock the engine. You can also put it in the gas tank.

You can put it in the gas tank, and a little bit in your oil about 100 miles before your oil change... Not too much though.
