A lot of people call this knock reducer in a can because it removes all the carbon buildup on the valves and in the cylinders reducing pressure buildup and hence KR. i'll get taps on the car once its done to see if it helped at all.
are you saying it reduces valve tap?

No, it removes carbon buildup inside the cylinders and around the valves. This reduces hot spots and extra pressure preventing predetonation (knock) due to these. I was refering to my autotap when talking about tapping the car to see if it did anything for me.

Relax!! haha, Well i'm on an NA ('87, the greatest year for bonnevilles... then agian i'm a little partial haha). Althought i haven't used this, I saw an earlier thread which discussed the use of the Seafoam and it said to use the hose that goes from engine to PCV valve for it on the NA engine. Assuming this is an equivealnt to sea foam that should do it for you too!

The PCV hose hooks up directly to the vacuum tube rack which is mated to my throttle body (my MAF isway ahead of all this and on the air inlet hose but I assume your MAFs are all ahead of the vacuum hoses on the throttle body so there isn't much need to worry. Anyway If you unplug the PCV valve and just put that hose into the bottle of top engine cleaner it should suck it all in. ... IThe PCV valve shouldn't emit too much gunk at all during the operation although I'm not sure on that. I plan on giving this a go sometime early in May! Should be fun to see what ~160k miles of carbon will look like coming out of my tailpipe (or clogging it) haha.

I used an intake cleaner about a month ago to clean my throttle body and i also sprayed it throughout my intake manifold. The car had similar symptoms of wanting to drown for about 10 minutes but just keep the foot down and get that lead out! I dont think it removed that much carbon deposit though so i'm looking forward to this GM thing.

p.*. SOMEONE PLEASE CONFIRM MY IDEA OF PUTTING THE ENGINE CLEANER FLUID TO THE HOSE THAT HOOKS TO THE PCV VALVE! I'D HATE FOR ANYONE TO DO THIS AND IT RUIN SOMETHING. IT SOUDNS LIKE A SAFE IDEA TO ME BUT I DONT GUARANTEE ANYTHING!

I forgot exactly where that hose runs from the pcv valve to engine but I 'm 99% sure on my car it goes to the hose rack plate thingy which is on the throttle.. Ok cya all later!
