There is a vacuum line diagram right on the inside of your hood. Find the brake booster line, take it off, stick it in the seafoam real slow while adding some throttle. Then watch her smoke.

Yeah, there's a TSB for that!

My hood is so dirty from going off road that I'd have to wash it to find the sticker. Also, I'm learning a BUNCH about automotive DIY stuff (just changed my first O2 sensor on the wife's 2001 Sequoia last night and I've got the busted knuckles to prove it. If I knew which line was the brake booster, I would not have posted the question.

Rep for the first pic posted!

Got a pic of the v6 off google and drew an arrow to the brake booster. There is a vacuum line from the intake manifold to the booster. Take it off at the booster.

That's a 1st gen pic. I'll post the rep for effort but can't really see the line in the pic (even after blowing it up). Thanks... More rep for a 2nd gen!!!

It's the large line going from your firewall to your engine head next to the brake fluid resivoir. Take it off and let it drink but no pedal. Pretty much in the same place as the 1st gen. Make sure you do 1/3 in gas tank and 1/3 in crank case (oil) then drive for 50mi. Let the brake booster suck up the last 1/3

Sorry man I wasn't paying attention. Thought it was a 1st gen post. I'm assuming you do have a v6 though?

I searched youtube before I sea foamed my taco today. Didn't really find anything showing which tube and what not so I figured I'd make a quick vid and post it up.
Sea foamed my 95 integra the other day and the difference in the amount of smoke was huge! My truck didn't smoke much more than what was on the video.

After searching multiple threads I can't figure out where the vacuum line is for those of us with the hydraulic brake booster. Even the OEM manual has been no help to me.
http://www.customtacos.com/tech/file...a/04200710.pdf

If anyone can show me how to seafoam with a hydraulic brake booster it would be greatly appreciated.

Just as an FYI, I use a squirt bottle to inject the seafoam into the vacuum line. I get a much more even and controlled flow that way.

The vacuum will suck the sea foam right out of the can. You'll see.

Does it make a huge difference to poor a little of it into the vaccum hose versus all of it in the gas tank?
