Default 4 cans engine degreaser + 1 btl windex + $15 at carwash =

A damn clean engine bay



I went all out, took me at least an hour at the carwash...1/2 hour waiting for it to cool down (it had been sitting all night anyway, carwash is 3/4 mile away, but still)


Then the detailing afterwards with paper towels/towel/rag.

I also removed the insulation mat some time ago and pressure washed that seperatley, just put that back on.

I will be replacing the EGR mount soon so some of that rust look will be gone. I know I need an alternator as well as this 105A is not going to last long once I figure out my stereo plans.

This is the non-cv2 or whatever that stuff is look that I like.

























beat that
