Default Seafoaming a SSEi.....

We are going to seafoam Petey'* '92 SSEi this weekend when he comes up to do his LIM gaskets. Now my question is, where should we feed it in through? I kinda worry feeding it through a vacuum line before the rotors, since the seafoam could possibly get in the needle bearings and kill them?

The front vacuum tree that feeds the BCS is a good place.

The booster line will feed it through the rotors. The tree I mention is after the rotors. Downsides: close to one particular cylinder, could go right back through the wastegate anyway.

I would reccomend to disconnect the supercharger belt as you feed the seafoam in. The folks at GP club do that to protect the supercharger fins from getting their coating stripped.
