Lightbulb SeaFoam idea

I know that you can put seafoam in the fuel tank and clean the injectors. But what about the crankcase to clean the engine. I know you can do this with a gasser. I was thinking it could help clean the oil cooler... What do you all think?

It runs the risk of foaming like most additives under the amount of pressure in HEUI systems

I read on the can that you would pour it into the crankcase right before an oil change and let it run for like 10mins then drain... Not to pour and leave in.

even in ten minutes i would still run threw the injectors but i am no expert
so i will let so tech chime in on this one. but i would not put it in my truck
if you are worried about cleaning the oil cooler take it of and clean it or replace lots cheaper than a set of injectors

If you do some searching, everything on here says to NOT POUR SEAFOAM IN THE CRANKCASE.

Use it in your fuel bowl and gas tank. That's it.
