Thank you for making my day. That was "post-worthy".

On a side note, for TDI folks, I've learned alot about turbo and turbo health over last 6 months. Many turbo shops recommend not using additives in the oil as loosening particles is bad for turbos. Small particles that break free can clog the turbo oil inlet (very small port) and kill the turbo in short time.

That's also why they all recommend replacing the oil feed line, rather than cleaning it, when replacing a turbo. risk of particles is too great.

Not my advice, debate it all you want.

Put in two, it should be twice as effective.

just seafoamed the 90 and wifey's 30K VW GTI. Honestly didn't see much smoke with the 90 (changed fuel filter and filled new one with seafoam and a bit of ATF) but the petrol GTI... WHOA. Going for a drive now to see if it feels any different.

This was hilarious.


Just wanted to say I've heard nothing but bad things about Seafoam and it's counterparts.

I picked up a gallon of the Seafoam / Sea Foam stuff over the weekend for my truck, and some 2 cycle engines.

Here's the video of start-up of the truck after sucking in about 6 ounces of the Seafoam through the vacuum on the brake master, and letting it sit about 12 minutes. You can see my nice exhaust leak ala muffler hole under the truck. Yes, I did this at an old abandoned Verizon lot, as you don't want an unnecessary call made to the Fire Dept!

any noticeable changes in the trucks behavior. I have always been on the fence about seafoam and have never used it. I will use techron prior to an oil change.

Nothing great yet, but I've also read it'll drive like crap for a bit after applying the treatment. I usually idle around 6-800 RPMs, and after the treatment I was idling around 4-600 which is a little too low. Because of the intermittent lower idle I was getting the flickering oil pressure light, and then a Check Engine light after about 20 minutes of driving. I'll know more next weekend when I'm back at the car, and will report back with any continued issues after the application. Before the treatment I was already aware of the muffler hole (hopefully being replaced under warranty) and cats that need to be replaced once I get my new muffler, so some symptoms may be assoicated with that issue.

Seafoam can foul up the plugs and/or O2 Sensors as well. I've run it through my truck on a couple different occasions with out problem.

Was thinking about this too, since there's free shipping and I have a $100 gift certificate.

When I did mine, I just had the old cut out but if I did it again I would either go NRP or would get a shop to make me something with random cats like ECR uses

Do they test your trucks for emissions?

I have generally heard good things about using sea foam. I wouldn't think a vehicle that uses quality fuel sees high revs and regular maintenance would need sea foam

Well, my truck is driving like a dream, but it's more likely because of the whole new exhaust system I had installed with new cats, and o2's, as one of the cats was bad.

Trailhead 4X4 made a SS Y-pipe with random cats for me. I think random is what ECR uses.

FYI, the only thing stainless on the NRP y pipe is the tailpiece. This is welded to a mild steel connector flange. Quite disappointed with mine. 'sides their warranty is for schmidt. stay away.
