Finally used the seafoam

Got bored yesterday sitting at home. So I got the can of seafoam that's been in the trunk for months and cleaned off the top end using the brake vacum line
I put 1/3 of the can in, stalled the motor out, let it sit about 10 min started it back up and the smokin began ,not really bad (engine has 23,500 miles) took about 5 mile to clear the smoke
But Holy **** the stuff works idle is smooth,throttle response is crisp, and the car performance feels a lot better than before. I was skeptical about this product but it worked for me
I put 1/2 can in the crank drove about 45 miles and change the oil

Re: Finally used the seafoam

I'm still amazed at how well it worked. I was all set to bad mouth seafoam as being another BS product. But the stuff does what it claims .
Just got my new plugs from VMP last night .Now I'm hunting for new plug wires. Might get these Mustang 2005+ - Mustang MSD Plug Wires mustang parts, mustang accessories, mustang floor mats, mustang apparral not that they'll give me any performance increase I just like the way they look I'm also lookin into JBA wires 2004, 3.8L/232, MUSTANG, FORD, Spark Plug Wires and Accessories, Ignitions & Electrical - summitracing.com

Any suggestion are welcome

Re: Finally used the seafoam

I ran it in my 87 ranger one time...mileage is unknown. Needless to say it made a mess.

Last time I ran it through the white car I put most of a 4 lane road under a smoke screen.

Re: Finally used the seafoam

I did it at 114k miles on the GT. I didn't get all that much smoke. Mine also freaked me out because I had an idler blow at the same time I did the seafoam. So we got a terrible odor out of the engine. Couldn't figure it out for a little while because it was still spinning. It would be fun to do it again to see if I could get better results.

As in 03/04 Cobras in general?

the only thing i could think about would be to try to get the seafoam to introduce post-blower. Pre-Blower would help to get great atomization but might also diminish the effects or possibly mess up some blower seals.

otherwise it should be no different than any other car. All its doing is taking off any carbon deposits in the combustion chamber, thusly lowering your compression back to stock from whatever marginal compression ratio increases the carbon would have added (if any).

I plan on seafoaming my cobra this summer.

theres no reason to, there wouldnt be much carbon deposits yet for it to be worth your time.
