Maybe you guys/Johan could answer this...
Did this over the weekend to prep for a tune. Used the brake booster line initially, got about 2/6th of the can in there pouring very slowly and occasionally stopping if the motor was laboring too much. Hand slipped a little and just a touch too much went in, stalling the motor. Basically let it set for 15 minutes, it started right up, drove it hard. Didnt see much/any smoke.
Since the process was halted by the premature stall, I tried going through the PCV hose - same technique, just used a funnel and poured a bit at at time (very slowly like last time...didnt take much of anything to stall it). Did another 2/6th of a can, pouring a little faster at the end per Johan's instructions to stall, which it did.
Let it sit, started right up, smoked a little, and then during the drive smoked a lot.
My question is, being an obsessive individual, is this stalling harmful to our trucks. Its in Johan's method, but isn't it basically hydrolocking? Isn't the potential for damage to the motor greater than the benefit of just slowly pouring and shutting the motor down?
