I seafoamed my Corvette 2 months ago. I poured a couple ounces in my gas tank, a couple ounces in my crank case for about 300 miles.

Then I used the seafoam spray can which has a little plastic horseshoe tube about 7 inches long which slides infront of the throttle body blade and cracks the blade open about an 1/8th inch more. What I liked about this was it opened the blade just enough to hold my idle about 2000 RPMs so you dont need a second person.

I sprayed the full can into the manifold which did not cause the engine to stall, so I poured a couple more ounces into the vacuum line. The car still didnt stall out, but I felt I added ample detergent. I shut the car off for a 1/2 hour, removed the tube in front of the throttle body, plugged in the vacuum line and started it up. I made 4-5 wide open runs and called it a day after I changed the oil.

Yes sir. I've heard people call it a "vacuum line", atleast that's the way it has been described to me in the past. Honestly, I didn't really care what it did, I just cared about where it went into my intake at. That seemed to be the perfect location for the seafoam treatment on a N/A motor. speaking of that....i'm not trying to jack your thread bumblebee!

Bumblebee-Maybe you can do the seafoam treatment followed up by some sort of oil-injection treatment for your supercharger? I've never had a s/c motor so my level of ignorance is fairly high in this area, but I can't see injecting a solvent that cleans off oil into a supercharger without some sort of re-oiling method being a good idea.

NO SEAFOAM THROUGH YOUR SUPERCHARGER. NO NO NO. SC are meant to pump air not liquid.

Looks like he hooked it up to the nipple of the side of the intake. Don't quote me but that's what it seems.

That hose goes from the top of the motor into the intake at the elbow bend in it. I believe it is a vacuum hose. Look under your hood and you will see it (if you have an aftermarket CAI. I can't remember if the stock intake has it in the same location, I don't THINK it does though) If you look at the picture knowing this, you can see it. Kinda looks like an optical illusion at first.
