Question Seafoamed twice and little to no smoke?

Hello everyone

So I just got done seafoaming my car ( for the second time ) ( 33/33/33 gas/oil/intake ) and I found it pretty odd that I didn't get much to any smoke when doing so. I used two different vacuum hoses when sending it into the manifold.

I have included a picture of my engine ( yes I know it is dirty - I live in Montana and have to drive a dirt road almost daily )

Hose 1 is the first vacuum line I sent it up and it didn't smoke at all and the engine didn't have any troubles at all taking it. Didn't want to start after, but that was to be expected

Second time I used hose number 2 in the picture and the engine did want to stall, as to be expected and made me feel better vs hose 1, and smoked a bit when pulling it in, but then only smoked very little after letting it sit.

I sucked the SeaFoam into the car with the engine warm, and let it sit in the intake for 10 min each time.

Is there a better vacuum line to be using? Thanks
