Ok will do. It's idling at 500 rpm.

Process is actually pretty easy:
- run engine up to temp
- remove PCV hose to spray directly intake (I removed the line that goes from the side of the intake to my catch can)
- have somebody keep RPMs between 2-3K while you spray short bursts into the intake until the can is empty
- replace the hose and let heatsoak for an hour
- take it for a drive
So just the hose on the right side that my catch can connects to? And that will clean both sides? I'm thinking of using that instead of seafoam if it cleans better.

Not to confuse you, but when it comes to that type of cleaning, Sea Foam has never let me down...
But of course, it is a Minnesota company, so I may be biased.

I had a can of the seafoam spray in my office at work so that's what I'm going to use to clean the intake this weekend. [emoji16]
