I wish i had it here at schooll with me but it'* the one that covers all GM H body cars from 86 to 98 i believe (or whichver the last year before the latest update to the look was). I got it from JCWhitney.com for about 20+ bucks. It'* helped a ton. Good luck and i'll post here soon as i do the operation (next week)

So the consensus so far..

Won't harm Cat..
May require new plugs..

Seafoam will work just as well as the GM engine top cleaner?

Reason I'm asking is that GM is always closed when I leave work or when on my way to work.

is your GP supercharged? if not where did you hook up the engine clean? and could you go through how you did it vs. what was first said how to do it?

hmmm...good point. Maybe we should add o2 sensors to the list of stuff to replace after you do this.
