As it says Seafoam, i just bought some and its on its way to my house in a few days.

heard positive and negative things about it,

Positive:
Cleans carbon from pistons and all other internals,
Can be used in fuel, oil and intake/crank
Clears up rough idles
Improves throttle response
and Increases fuel economy

Negatives:
May remove so much carbon that it highlights poorly sealing piston rings and causes you to have to consider rebuild (quite a hefty negative should it arise)

But i'm feeling brave and when i get home in april i will be running it through my car and posting a video to show the results, HOWEVER if anyone knows reasons i shouldnt do this or has advice on doing it then please tell me :D

Seems a very American thing. They've made a solution to a problem that no one knew they had, complete with the clouds of smoke proving what has been burnt out.
:hihi
It does seem a very 'look at all the crap that used to be in the engine!' product.
I joined an american mazda forum when I was having problems with my 626 and guys over there seem to swear by it.

Armourer: It should be on the black plate on the drivers side suspension strut.

Don't really see the point in it, there are thousands of vans and trucks on the the road with 3 - 4 - 500 000 miles on the clock and have no engine problems resulting from carbon build up and have never been seafoamed, seems like a gimmick for,if that video is anything to go by, people who drive around with their fog lights on when it clearly isn't foggy. :p
