    Most people who do the Seafoam cleaning use the brake booster line. It looks like the brake booster only feeds one cylinder.

    The other vacuum line is right after the throttle body and looks like it feeds into every cylinder.

    Am I correct on this?

    I use the one that feeds just forward of the throttle body, and it should feed all cylinders via the plenum.

    However, i noticed its more inclined to dump into the center 2 plenum feeds.

    Seafoam aerosol works a bit better in that regard.

    Well, I didn't use Seafoam, I used water to decarb the engine and WOW, what a difference It made. Idles smoother and is more responsive. After that, I cleaned the MAF. Cleaning the MAF made the most difference, I am a firm believer in OEM filters and some dirt still got to the MAF. After cleaning it, there was no difference at speed but from a stop, she just wants to go!
