    What’s the best vacuum line to pull to add seafoam on the 3.6 and 3.5? Also, should it be added before or after an oil change?

    Can't tell you exactly which one. BUT any one that goes directly into the manifold AFTER the throttle body. AND you will want to configure a VERY small nozzle into that line so that the vacuum does not suck too much by volume and "flood" it out.

    I was told that it will foul my spark plugs so I’m gonna opt out of the seafoam at this time.

    Haven't used it on my Venge yet but never had an issue with fouled plugs. You use the spray with the special nozzle that comes with it and spray directly into throttle body as the instructions on the can indicate. I've done a few cars that way.

    Agree with Intrepid, But I have always used the suction from container method.
    Just need to make up a cheap and easy reducer nozzle so too much doesn't get sucked in at once.
