That'* nice looking. What did you use to clean the engine bay? Did you cover anything up before you sprayed the water in there?

Looks great! Do you feel any difference as ride goes?
And I also want some advice on that engine cleaning.

to clean the engine I just sprayed the **** out of it with orange cleaner...
waited about 5 mins, started hosing it down, started it up a min later (wanted to make sure it would
start after, i.e. no belt slippage) then continued hosing it
after that I took her for a drive to dry her off

I could have spent more time doing it but I wanted to get the coolant changed...man that stuff looked filthy

You can notice a bit more of a tug, the sound is definately the most noticable thing, maybe some better fuel mileage (I've been keeping track all year so I'll let you guys know how this goes)

The water never made it over there,
you can see the upper coolant hose is still dirty

Thanks for your concern though
