    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Now if I could make a rig that fogged it in before the throttle body, it would be liquid gold. The booster line goes to the intake, if I remember correctly, which neglects to clean the rest of the induction system further upstream.
    Still a good product. I just need to cobble something together for a small, low volume fogger...

    Its only like 6 dollars here in Portland.. thats a big price differance.

    I did it on my 06 Tacoma with about 65K and my girlfriends 96 Civic with 180K and smoothed the idle and all that just like you said. Great stuff in my opinion...

    Girlfriends car smoked like hell for like 15 mins of driving and my truck gave a couple poofs and then was clean . . Cleaner engine with lower miles? I dunno

    same shit as everyone else
    Nothing about seafoam sounds like it could be good for anything in your engine... Just watched a lot of youtube on it. I'm skeptical...

    love seafoam. i use it on everything.........trucks/cars/lawn mowers/golf carts. it simply works.

    berryman b12 chemtool also works good, but moreso in cleaning gummed up carburetors from lawn mowers and such.

    This thread is a good read:

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/63790-seafoam.html

    Post 7 has vacuum hose location.

    Run engine to get it nice and warm before the procedure.
    You can easily disconnect that hose from the brake booster (round black thing on the driver side firewall). It'll be sucking air and the engine will continue to run. I measured out 1/3 of the can in a glass measuring cup and SLOWLY poured it in while my friend gave it gas to about 2000 rpms so it doesn't stall.

    Then the truck was turned off for 10 minutes, then I took it for a drive.

    I followed the instructions on the can and on the official website.

    I don't believe it. Nothing works better that frequent oil changes and maintenance by Toyota( or your favorite garage) every 30k. Most Gasoline has additives to keep your injectors/carbs clean and the valves from loading up with carbon. Believe me guys, this stuff is expensive snake oil.

    you said "it's not like it performs a tune up and adjust's your timing", and i said when did i ever say that it did. can you not comprehend english????? probably is a dead injector but I gave it a try, and was stating it didn't work for me. Sorry you get all butt hurt over the fact that I said it didn't work for my vehicle.

    you mad bro? you said you dont believe it because it didnt work on your beater. Ry said it isnt a tune up in a can and you say when did i say it was.. NOW you're asking if he can comprehend English?

    holy shit bro you're saying you probably have a dead injector yet expected seafoam to cure it?


    you're dumb dude you should probably go rethink this forum thing

    you feel better now after giving your buddy a reach around??? your the dumb one misinterpreting my statement, re-read you f'n tard. I never said I didn't believe it, I was just seeing if it would maybe treat my problem. I didn't know whether I had a dead injector or not.

    One or two things modded... Check out the build
    seafoam just released a new can that has the built in fogger that you guys are wanting. same price as the other can and has a straw on it that you put in before your throttle body and pull the trigger then ta dah you got everything havent tried it yet but what some have told me works quite well.
