Seafoam is a great product. Although I have not yet used it in my Ram I have run it in my 200 opti max for years. I have seen serveral outboards torn down and the differance between one that has used seafoam and those that have not is a real eye opener. the seafoam engine in VERY much cleaner

that's great news, when my Hughes air gap replaced the keg style intake manifold I got to see how dirty my block was, and I assume it was from the plenum gasket issue, cleaned as much as we could but think the seafoam will get the cracks and cranies we weren't able to.

Codes, How was that air gap mod? I am seriously considering that myself in the near future. I think my Plenum gasket may have a leak and for the repair cost vs the air gap cost it isnt much of a difference, so once its off its all the same putting back together. How long did it take you? Maybe I can mod the keg , port and polish it and sell it to recoup a few bucks later? I just like the air gap a little better that a keg sitting on my block...lol

lol I love it man, I can feel a lot more power especially on the top end, looks great as well. installation wasn't to bad took us like half the day because we weren't really sure what we were doing. takes some modifications but shouldn't be anything that you can't handle. my truck runs significantly cooler with it along with some other mods. I love it man lol

Seafoam works great especially if you have an upcoming e-test. On another board that I belong to seafoam was all the rage for some of the longterm mechanics but they now prefer the Lucas Fuel injector cleaner. They still like the seafoam though if they can't get the Lucas right away.
