Planning to do some engine cleaning with autorx and sea form. For the sea form part the consensus is to use the vacuum lines for the FPR and to the DV. My concern is cylinder 2 and 3 will not get much if any of the liquid. The only way for all the cylinders to get an even amount is through the tube infront of the throttle body. I am planning to tape a metal tube from the rubber connector leading to the TB. My question is will the sea form harm any of the parts in there?

Just do it the way I did in the write-up. It gets too all of the cylinders. I did a before and after with a borescope from work to look and they all cleaned up very nicely. As long as you do what the write-up tells you, there is no reason to re-invent the wheel.

Run a vacuum line from the nipple off the intake mani back by the FPR and the one that leads to the DV, connect those together with a tee fitting, and then you'll have one hose that you can run into your can of Sea Foam, this will more or less disperse the liquid evenly.

The write up says the line near the TB. I used the booster line - worked fine.

I know how to do it from the writeup, but I just don't think by connecting only both end will supply any liquids to the middle 2 cylinder.

By the way, I am talking about the 1.8 not the 2.8.

Like I said Andrew, I did a before borescope and the piston tops were black as hell with carbon. Did a seafoam treatment and did the after borescope on all cylinders and all the carbon was gone. Even cleaning on all 4 cylinders.

nylon tee with some clear aquarium tubing. the feeder should be clear too but i only had black in that size. i should have used a piece of old camelbak hose. the seafoam bottle sits on the SMIC hose and the tee lets it feed both sides evenly. it worked like a charm.

Alright I'll take your word for it.

Just a heads up, the engine will start to increase in RPMs like you are giving it gaswhen you start sucking up the Sea Foam, but that is normal; so don't freak out. Also, don't let too much Sea Foam get sucked in or you could hydrolock your motor. Good luck. [:p]

and keep the rpms up at 2500
to ensure smooth "sucktion" of the seafoam i cut the tip of the tube that goes to the seafoam in a diagonal about 3mm
