Replace parts before or after seafoam?

Im planning on doing a tune up myself, replace fuel filter, oil filter, oil change, spark plugs, distributor cap/rotor, o2 sensor, sp wire set, etc. Should I replace these things before or after I run seafoam through my engine? I'm thinking after because if I do it before, it'll just run the dirty crap to through the new parts?

Re: Replace parts before or after seafoam?

definitely after. look up the DIY seafoam treatment. 1/3 in the gas, 1/3 in the oil, and 1/3 in the intake (find a vac line) then change oil/rest of tuneup and you'll be set

PCV valve is great for intake.

Re: Replace parts before or after seafoam?

How about the fuel filter? Since after seafoaming and replacing all parts, there will still be seafoam in action inside the fuel. Im thinking of seafoaming the fuel tank only first then seafoam rest of car and replace EVERYTHING
