That is a stock SSEI engine, but wow, even if they spent hours cleaning that in a garage to sell, it still wouldn't look that good, that is amazing. Very well cared for. It does not have the stock cover, but I am sure that you can pick one up from the local junkyard for cheap...

I've used cleaner that can take a nasty grimy mess to that in one application. Expensive cleaner sells cars.

Sorry mod for being off topic, but I am really interested in cleaning my engine bay up, what is a good brand to use, and I will pick some up from the local O' Rileys. Just PM me if you don't want to be off topic.
