Gen2 M62 has no coating on the rotors.

Thanks for the correction. I was about to delete my post (thanks alot for not allowing me to!) when I read up some more on it.

But anyway there is a very excellent writeup here, it may be helpful:

Oh yea, after the seafoam your o2 sensor will get a barrage of all the junk coming out of the engine. You may have to replace it or stick in a used one while doing the seafoam.

You can also use GM top end cleaner. Part # 1050002

Seafoam won't strip the rotors. Billboost soaked some rotors that already had partial stripping from something else and the Seafoam had no effect on the coating.
