Default First Sea Foam Treatment Video

Well I treated the fuel tank and decided to go ahead and treat the intake as well. Here's my video for scrutiny ()and to show others how I did mine. I am a believer now as the truck is much quicker to respond to the accelerator and seems to have more power. I'm not sure how to embed the video so here is the link:

I too thought that there would be more smoke, if it has not been done before

The sea foam does help. I used to do my 09 Cobalt SS turbo and I covered half the apt complex in smoke. Also use it in my 98 Trans Am with the LS1 and big cam plus bolt ons. Keep that Cobalt running like a champs and my Trans am I still have. I plan to use it on my 14 Ram as well.

Well I did mine and yes what a smoke show I put on. Neighbour thought I blew a head gasket. I also noticed a better response afterwards. Surprised that you only got a bit of smoke, did you take it for a drive as well that's when most of the smoke came out of mine.

Good Video. but I think it does say on the bottle to go for a drive after you start it back up and drive it moderately or spirited. Meaning Give it some beans under load! haha. Did that with my Cobalt SS a few times. Right after doing it my car felt so much better. I coulda swore that the acceleration was as good with 3 people in it as it was with just myself before seafoaming.

I'm just happy the Ram has easy access to the throttle body. Not so much with my Cobalt.

Some think it was simply a character on a game. I've been using that moniker since around 1996 or so.

For you other guys... I did a "spirited" drive directly after. I was amazed at the throttle response improvement. Also, the mpg has seemed to inch up a bit. I'm a believer now.

What about if you have a CatchCan hooked up? Do you remove it first or leave it on?
