What do you clean when it'* going to rain? Well, the engine of course.

I wiped everything down, got out a brush and scrubed teh alternator, supercharger, throttle body, fuel rails, anything I could get to. This is also after installing my hose wraps.

Still have a ways to go, but it'* really cleaning up good. now I want to find some extra parts, supercharger, fuel rail, stuff like that. Then clean them up and at soem point I'll swap them out. Then I can change all my gaskets at that time.

nice engine bay but i think you guys go a little overboard with the heat resistant foil t o "keep temperatures down"

Put some high-heat dynamat in there and call it a day.
