Damn :/ I wanted to seafoam but just changed my wires/plugs last weekend. Would that damage the new plugs? I put in NGK Iridiums

I guess your cars too clean for seafoam....?

I got a lot of smoke, some people like Ruski got a little...weird how you didnt get any. It basically removes carbon, so maybe you dont have much...

Little smoke after SeaFoam in the brake booster line, means not that much carbon build up.
But for example like mine, since i have a Greddy Evo exhaust, alot of white smoke comes out after a couple of minutes.
As for how much you should use on the brake booster aka the intake manifold, or oil/crank case should be half, i use a yogurt container and fill it up to the lip on the inside.
Usually full can for gas tank.

Can someone explain a bit better why its better to pour then let it suck up. Alot of my buddies with accords just suck it up through there pcv valve. Plus u said by sucking it goes to the back of the intake valves.

why is this bad?

Sucking it up allows it to travel all through the engine braking up all the carbon instantly , putting it into the gas mixes with all the gas making it less active. i recommend doing it through the brake booster line and some into the oil to break up particles in your oil then do an oil change
