If you're doing it for the cam adjusters then it would go in the oil. If you put it in the intake that would mix it with the fuel and go through the combustion chambers and out the tail pipe.

You want the kind for an oil change.

I have never done this before but the cam adjusters are lubricated by the engine oil so you want to Seafoam the oil.

Shock treatment has definitely helped me with my past (knocking on wood) cam adjuster problems.

Loosen the screws to the coolant reservor and set aside and remove as many of the vacuum lines as possible then their not too bad to get too.
