Nice write-up. I would love to do this to my Volvo but I can't find the vacuum tree. 1995 940 wagon.

researching seafoam for application on my 1997 850, I came across your post: What size rubber tubing did you use to fit one of the capped vacuum port on the vacuum tree. Where did you get or bought it?
I appreciate a quick response…Thank you.

Uh you guys do know that they now make Seafoam in a spray can with a tube designed so you drop the pre bent tube into the intake just in front of the throttle body reattach the air tube and run it through don't you?? MUCH MUCH easier to use it that way and is more effective in cleaning the carbon off the pistons, chamber and valves done that way! Be sure you do a throttle plate and MAF clean also to get the full effect.
Seafoam In the tank is ok but I think there are better injector cleaners out there ( like the LUCAS) and I don't use it in the crankcase.
I just bought a used 04 xc90 and want to use the spray seafoam. Where do I spray it in at.

Can anyone post a picture on where exactly to put the new nozzle spray seafoam?
maybe update the the intake seafoam procedure for the spray version?
