seafoam in the intake tract

ok, whats your impressions of buying the seafoam that has the long 180 squirty thing meant to go in the air side. I know your not suppose to put seafoam in the oil which I have never done and don't plan to. I put some seafoam in the fuel tank which I've read is ok to do. But my question is how about using the aresol can to squirt it in the intake manifold to clean out the carbon build up in the intake and valves.

Has anyone done this? this shouldn't hurt anything right because it is post turbo and not touching the oil side.

ok so I did some research and this sounds like a bad idea, so this is a no go. That stuff has worked wonders on all my 2stroke and 4 stroke toys/vehicles just though the old powersmoke could benefit

I've done it before, nothing happened. But on a compression ignition engine, I'm sure something could still go wrong.

To clean the intake, it will be more beneficial to take it to get hot tanked or let it sit in a cleaner/degreaser. I let mine sit in purple power for 4 days and that got it clean.

Seafoam works great for cleaning carbon. I used it to clean the piston on my snow blower. I could literally wipe the carbon build up off the piston.

yeah, I read someone called seafoam and asked them if they could use the aresol can on a diesel and they said NO. The reason is because of the nature of the diesel motor, compression ignition.

Yeah I know, I've used it on everything but my truck. it works so good
