wash the engine with regular car wash soap and do it real good. when i did mine, i washed along the outside of the hood and the engine bay. dont spray it with high pressure, just a regular hose will work. I then used steel wool and scrubbed the plenum until it got like the second picture. i then did the other side the same way. i then used blue magic aluminum polish and nevr dull on it.

After all that im gonna spray the CD2 engine detailer on that, but i have to finish everything up first.

i clean what i can reach, theres some places you just cant reach, for them a brass toothbrush really comes in handy, so do the nylone ones.
