    Never done it to my wrx since it hasn't even had its first oil change yet but I have done it a few times on my Audi. I do every other interval and I feel the car runs better afterwards. After you seafoam drive around a little bit for it to settle into the spots for carbon cleaning then change your oil and spark plugs. Every time you seafoam is its recommended that you get new spark plugs because the carbon waste from the seafoam cleaning will get onto your plugs and cause other problems.

    Oh you're gonna need an extra set of hands when you inject into the vacuum line because someone needs to control the hose and can of seafoam and the other on the gas pedal.

    What it says exactly on their website...


    "Sea FoamŽ Motor Treatment is a 100% pure petroleum product that safely and effectively cleans internal fuel and oil system components, helping your gasoline or diesel engine run cleaner and more efficiently. Sea FoamŽ is an EPA-registered product, and will not harm engine components, seals, gaskets, catalytic converters or oxygen sensors.

    Sea FoamŽ liquefies gum and varnish deposits or internal engine contaminants, removing carbon deposits, freeing sticky valve lifters and rings, improving idle quality, pinging and hesitation problems. By using Sea FoamŽ to eliminate varnish and carbon buildup, mechanics can more accurately diagnose mechanical problems that may exist. That is why Sea FoamŽ has been so popular with professional mechanics for over 65 years.

    As a fuel system additive, Sea FoamŽ will clean carburetors, fuel injectors, clean carbon, gum and varnish deposits, add lubricity to fuel, stabilize fuel for 2 years and control moisture.

    As an oil system additive, Sea FoamŽ controls moisture, gum, varnish and residue deposits."

    Just search "seafoam" and the info will pop up . It can be used as a topend cleaner.

    I personally use Amsoil Powerfoam, not the Seafoam brand.

    As long as you spray it after your throttle body, its works.

    For a vehicle with 130k miles it probably would be a good idea to use correct? However im not enthused about changing spark plugs since I just changed mine 6k miles ago

    Yes. Why would it be a bad idea? You can always check thier website for the instructions/recommendations.

    Well spark plugs are relatively inexpensive and the pros of doing the treatment outweigh the fact that you need to buy new sparks. In my eyes its worth it but you can always wait till your next oil change to do the treatment to get more out of the plugs if that's what you want to do.

    I prefer to let sleeping dogs lay. However if you insist on the process, you could put the old plugs in beforehand. It's a shame to waste new plugs that have 90% of their service life left.
