Hmm, good thought, but I think some may still go through the SC because the bypass valve will be open.

I'm looking forward to test results, Bill.

The can says to use 1/3 of it. Is that the general concensus here?

Poured directly onto remaining epoxy.

Waited 5 minutes..no peeling
Waited 10 minutes ... no peeling
After 15 minutes scratched at it with needle nose pliers..no peeling

Consider seafoam safe as far as I'm concerned

*gasp* Holy geez that'* a *wheeze* whole lotta *cough* smoke!!!!

When the can says smoke will be extreme for a short while, it aint kidding.

Sidenote: within seconds my engine bay was filled with smoke. Reminiscient of Hans'* short lived SSEi. Got EM cracks?

I just did like a third of a can. Should I do the whole thing tomorrow?

I intended to do 1/3 the first time, but it kinda got away from me. Was about 1/3 left, so I finished it off. I doubt that it will hurt anything, just maybe get whatever crud might be left. I am not even sure that it will remove it all. Did seem to run better, but haven;t scanned as of yet. Bill mentioned earlier about water injection. I do have an interest in that, but not until after I get things straight. I am begining to think my KR may never go away without it though.
