Question seafoam in brake booster?

I just saw a reference to putting seafoam thru the brake booster. Does that actually get it into the engine? I've put it thru the vac hose on my pcv valve with no problems, and it seems to have at least halted the issue I was trying to address. Feedback anyone?

Brake booster will run it into the intake.

You will get same results as putting it into the pcv

To specify more, you put it in through the brake booster vacuum hose. I'm sure you already knew that but just to be sure I thought I'd post it anyway.

Thanks for the clarifications guys! I think I'll stick with the PVC if it all goes to the same place.

it's in a real screwy spot as far as i'm concerned. let me go look real quick and give you a good idea

----------

ok. It's just left of the brake fluid reservoir and behind the oil dipstick. Look for a skinny hose looping down to meet a fat hose coming up. where they meet you'll see a metal flange. that flange is whats visible of your pcv. It's all just kinda floatin in mid-air there. At least mine is. Took the better part of day find that fucker the first time! And the manual was no help either. Oh, the fat hose on mine has a yellow stripe down the length of.
