Using Seafoam on a 300k+ 1995 Mustang V6 Engine - Good or Bad Idea?

V6 engine i rebuild had 305k miles on it, heads were plained, new gaskets, polished the whole thing, i would like to clean the rest of the gunk out with seafoam, what do you guys think of throwin that into a 95 with that many miles on it...i know the engine was dirty as hell when i took it apart
