Its worth the money, but dont expect miracles. This is one of the few brands that will actually do something.

Im currently using it. Ive noticed very LITLLE gains. But it did help balance my compression through-out the cylinders.

What you need to get is a can of "Top Engine Cleaner" for $5 from GM.
Chris Embrey told me about it, and now I swear by it.
I'll never use anything else...

Ive used both SEAFOAM and ENGINE RESTORE.  They both help but neither will perform miracles. :D

Top Engine Cleaner, I think, is acutally better than Seafoam, when used in the engine.

I still swear by Seafoam as a fuel system additive/cleaner though.

MARVEL MYSTERY OIL!

it's also good to regularly get a fuel with some kind of detergent additive to the fuel, like techron or other brand's names. keeps those old 2.8's injectors clean..

AH YES!!! forgot about the great MARVEL..  Add a quart to a full tank of the highest octane fuel you can pick up and a pint in the oil when topping off.  Cleans internals nicely... :0

I put some restore in an Oldsmobile Delta 88 with a 305 and it made it idle hella smoother and made it stop smoking..  This stuff sure enough works on old engines..

has anybody ever looked in a can of Engine Restore?????  Its filled with metal filings......no word of a lie, i dunno about the rest of y'all but im not so hot with metal filings. Now Lucas Oils are the sh!t!! their oil stabilizer and top end lubricant do amazing things. :)
