Best Engine Detailer?
I'm prepping my engine bay and I'd like it to be spotless before installing all my mods. What do you guys recommend to thoroughly clean everything?

Just hit everything up with simple green or some kind of degreaser.

do you just spray water in the engine bay? would it affect anything? what do you need to cover or be careful about?

^^yes you can spray water in there...nothing will be harmed..if you have a shortram Intake, don't shoot it though...

you can use spray nine, simple green, an all purpose cleaner, or engine cleaner...
anything that you find really.

you should probably cover up the distributor...otherwise ur screwed if it gets wet. other than that...u usually just got to a self wash place...cover it up and start sprayin. works wonders

I don't imagine that you really want to do something like taking a hose to it though...

But, i could be wrong... and please correct me if i am
