Is your steering wheel on the right side of the car? in you Youtube video? Or was someone else in the car and you guys were just sitting in the passenger seat?

hmm the ONLY difference i see is that idle is MUCH smoother and vibrations are down by a little. other than that, its not that quick of a car to notice that much a diff.

AND..
as you see, not much smoke came out, so obviously my carbon buildup wasnt that bad to begin with.

you can get it at Napa or autozone, its about 8 bucks for a can. pour half the can into a cup, and use the pcv hose to suck it in (SLOWLY) otherwise youll stall the car out. put the rest in a full tank of gas.


wait about 20 to 30min and rev the **** outta it till all the smoke is gone.

Must have been a pretty clean engine cuz all the ones I have seen get seafoamed smoke like crazy. Unless you just couldn't see it that well in the video.

That explains it. Gonna try it on mine in the next few days. I know it will be smoking. Guess I should wait til afterwards to do a tuenup, or does it matter if I do the tuneup before?

SeaFoam is probably the best carbon cleaning, fuel cleaning, valve cleaning product anyone could buy. No where as expensive as ZMAx but it works swell. You can add it into your oil to clean up carbon from your internal lower end parts, let your intake suck up some to clean top end parts including the valves. Add a little to the gas to let it clean your pistons and valves and other upper parts.

ZMax is much stronger though. But I've used seaFoam since I was told about it 3 years ago. Your car will smoke and rattle like hell after you add it so bring it to 2000rpm for 5 minutes and boom, you have a clean engine.... ZMax works a hell of a lot better but 35 bucks for engine and fuel.

Also a good suggestion, after you've used it, please please get an oil change
