    Next time I seafoam (and probably change the plugs after) I'll video it... it is fun as hell to watch.

    You should also have a big sticker on top of your timing belt cover that says "NOTICE" only use twin ground electrode plugs...at least mine does...

    Do you put the full pint of Seafoam into the gas tank or pour it into the engine straight in?
    Does it matter?
    Is one way better?

    Cheers

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    Yeha, that's what I've been thinking. Dislodge it from the engine, and it goes...through the cat, all at once. Seems like it could really shorten the cat's life or throw codes, but people haven't seemed to mention that on any seafoam threads, though...hmmm.

    if it does turn out to be bad i could have my cousin cut the cat out do the seafoam and just re solder it back in no?

    but thats only in the case that it does damage the cat cause them things are expensive here in CA i remember with my old truck some people stole my cat from my truck right in front of my house and i had to buy a new one luckily my cousin had them universal cats that are now banned here in CA for 50 bucks but originals go for what 150+ or so i think
