I'm going back this Friday. I'm gonna use some seafoam tomorrow, see if that helps some with the KR. Hopefully I'll have a fully functional AFC by then, too. And it'll be around 60 degrees. That should help.

John, you and I need to talk about water injection. Seafoam is totally unnecessary with it. Ever.

Seafoam will strip the coating off SC rotors right?!?

Billboost had that problem with throttle body cleaner. Does anyone think Seafoam will do that?

Rogue was the first to Seafoam on this forum, and he'* since changed to a Gen5 blower. He'd know by inspecting his old Eaton. And I think we would have heard. So I doubt there would be an issue.

Depends where he picked up a vacuum though, there is a vac line right on the front of the intake below the SC that could have been used.
