Default I seafoamed the Bimmer

Fun. Don't mind my voice, I have a stuffy nose.

The vid is 2 minutes long, and it went 5 after that for a total of 10 minutes. I only revved it to 2500 in the vid and up 5k after that, I bet it will run much better now.

I'm guessing that he put it in the vaccum line. Once it soaks there and in the intake, it will eat away at the carbon that builds up all over the intake, etc. When you turn the car on all that carbon gets burned....which causes the smoke

Haha! I can barely drive it. I need to get readjusted to a stick, I keep stalling it. :(

And I did put it through the FPR line to clean it. Easier to do with one person, because if you disconnect a big vacuum hose, someone has to keep it idling white letting it suck it in.
