Default seafoam question

I plan on seafoaming my car pretty soon. So I know from previous posts I put 1/3 in gas tank, 1/3 in crank case, and then a 1/3....pcv valve? vaccum line for intake? I'm not exactly sure where the remaining 1/3 of seafoam goes. Can anybody guide me in the direction? Maybe circle where the remaining 1/3 goes in the picture?

1/3 in the gas tank
1/3 in the crank case
1/3 in the throttle body throat or the PCV Valve
I circled the PCV valve in the picture. I'm not exactly sure how you are supposed to pour 1/3 pint into the PCV valve. I haven't yet used SeaFoam so I cannot tell you for sure if that is correct. I just read it on their website.

So I unhook it where you circled and then somehow suck seafoam in from there?

Would it be a waste if I just put seafoam in gas tank and crank case and skipped throttle body (pcv valve)? that whole thorttle body/brake booster part confuses me lol

i used it on my truck and it gave me great results. It would be ideal to have a person keep the revs up as you lets the PCV valve suck in the seafoam. Because when you unhook the PCV, you lose vaccum, your engine acts weird and sucking liquid isnt going to help. But yea, get a paper cup, measure a 1/3 pint. It is SUPPOSE to clean your upper valves. Putting in the gas tank cleans injectors, which I think is the most important part. I dont know putting in the crank case is needed, but I have done it.
