2 Can of Seafoam & 1 Can of Deep Creep - 1 can goes into your fuel tank and half of the other one goes into your oil and the other half goes through the brake Booster line. The Deep Creep is sprayed through the throttle body. Let the vehicle sit 15-20 mins. and start up and watch the smoke show. If you have no smoke your vehicle didn't have any carbon build up to clean off.

How To SeaFoam Your Car The Right Way
Here is a video I made on how to use SeaFoam on my 1994 Honda Civic EX 1.6L
VTEC. These basic instructions to use SeaFoam can be applied when Seafoam
is used on other vehicles. SeaFoam may be purchased at your local auto

How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the
carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I
perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking
through a pvc line or brakeBooster
line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is
where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person
sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of
the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady
handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off &
replace pvc or brake Booster to its
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the
seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15
seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more
than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please
keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while
doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum
to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your
oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major
mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this
tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter
change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!

Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE
After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work.
Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the
catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect
opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner
to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the
converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I
would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice
any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed
the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel
the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the
result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links

Seafoam Motor Treatment Test | Engine Cleaner
I've read about the Seafoam Motor Treatment on several different message
boards and thought I would try it out on my 1977 Chevrolet C10 pickup. My

Sea foam engine cleaner in a Subaru WRX
A friend of mine asked me to tape him putting Sea Foam engine cleaner in
his 2004 Subaru WRX. I had to laugh because a neighbour walked over to ask
if he blew his turbo! Lot's of smoke
that's for sure!
Combustion Chamber Cleaning—Berryman Your Car; Don't Seafoam It!
In this video, I use the Berryman Products "Combustion Chamber Cleaner" via
vacuum induction. The product utilizes aggressive solvents and detergents
to clean the entire combustion chamber, including the heads, piston crowns,
and intake valves, rather than using a petroleum oil, an aliphatic
distillate (paint thinner), and isopropyl alcohol (not a very good
