you can remove the brake booster line and it will suck it in through there for the intake.

What about the little hose that runs to the FPR?

Curious to hear how it turns out, I have mixed feelings about that product.

I've used the nipple on top of the intake manifold. Make sure the car is hot when you do it. Run in the half can, then leave it for at least 30 minutes. Longer won't help. It will diesel a bit when you shut down - don't worry about it. When you start her back up, let it run for a couple minutes, then take it for a hard drive. The first time, I got nice white smoke for a bit, then drove it hard. Done it once since, got a bit of smoke at start up, more on the hard drive, but only lasted about 5 minutes.

Seafoam is the shit! I run a can every oil change in the gas, twice a year in the oil and via the intake.

seafoam is great on older cars, cleans shit out nice.

it is SUPER corrosive to rubber. I used the brake booster vaccum line but i wouldn't recommend it. Also i'd change your oil after doing this (you can actually put some in your oil and then do an oil change)

if you put it in your fuel, i'd do it when your fuel is 1/4 tank, run it as close to dry as you date, and then fill it all the way up

If used in the crankcase do you think it would help free up sticky lifters? What's the recommended process?

For the crankcase, just pour half a can in. Drive it for a day or two max... not too long, it thins the oil. Change the oil, Bob's your uncle.

Done and zero improvement, just a waste of time and oil.
