    Seafoam, etc?

    My friends have been singing the praises of using that seafoam stuff EVERYWHERE in their cars, and that it cleans so well it can turn oil black in a few hundred miles. Whatever. I figured it's worth 9 bucks a can to try it out, but something occurred to me. I have a 2006 WRX with stock turbo, is there an oil line running through it? Because I'm pretty sure the gunk would get caught up there if anywhere. Does anyone have any experience with using this stuff, or cleaning additives like it?

    I recommend if you do decide to run seafoam through your oil, change the oil in the next 500-1000 miles. However I can vouch for seafoam as in a good product. In my opinion there are very few products out there that someone can actually say " wow! this works" and seafoam in my opinion is one of them...I ran it threw the intake on my 233,000 mile Legacy for a slightly rough idle, and I can swear, and I know it sounds ridiculous but I have not only a better idle, but more power ( Prob all the carbon got broken free on the back of the valves, not sucking up all the gas anymore and some is actually getting burned ) haha...

    I've also had really good luck with this stuff.. I've never put it in the oil.. but I've put it everywhere else the bottle says you can... lol. It does exactly what it says it will do. Just make sure you follow the directions carefully and you're set.
