TBI engine, can you fog the cylinders?

Still learning the engine in my '00 xstar. My old boat had a GT40, it wa a no no to fog the cylinders through the intake manifold, instead fogging each cylinder individually was the order of the day.

Can I fog the Throttle body directly on the TBI engine, would doing so have an affect on any of the sensors such as the TPS sensor?

Who told you not to fog your 00? I assume it was a TBI motor.

What I have found in my reading is this:

Wet intake types = fog through intake.

Dry intake types = spark plug holes.

I do not understand the reasoning behind it but that's what seems to be the rule of thumb.

This is what I do on my TBI... thru TBI intake

I do both. I use a spray bottle with Marvel Mystery Oil and go thru the TBI then do each cylinder to satisfy my OCD.

The TPS isn't in the intake air stream, it's at the end of the rod used for mounting the throttle plate. The other sensors aren't affected by fogging oil, either.

Since you're familiar with fogging each cylinder, you can do it the same way, but the spark plugs are a lot easier to remove on this engine.
