Sea Foam Motor Treatment

My dad came across this product and used it on his Silverado recently, spraying through his throttle body, and said he felt noticeable changes in the trucks responsiveness.

Curious to see if anyone here has used it and their thoughts on it?

Plenty online and Youtube about it. I used it on an older car my daughter drove, but don't think I'd use it on the Camaro. Not that the LS3 is anything special, just don't see the need for a motor that has been taken care of, oil changed regularly, and had a catch can installed.....

I'll have to look into some of the write ups here, looked into a few articles today already since I just learned about it recently.

I don't have a catch can on mine, yet, so maybe run sea foam through it after the catch can install to clean up the valves and then should be good to go.

That is what my parents cul-de-sac looked like when he started his truck up after, couldn't see the house across the street, lol.

I would suggest doing a manual intake valve cleaning honestly a little time consuming but its what I plan on doing when I get back from deployment. ive heard good and bad reviews on the subject and cleaning it yourself seems the best way to go
