i just go to the self wash car washes where u put in a $1 and get 2mins, just click onto engine cleaner for a bit then high pressure rinse, easy as pie and comes up great.
gets rid of oil down the front of the rocker cover too hehe
The EA engine bay is hard to keep neat.. especially with the MPI manifold.
When I installed the EF manifold, I managed to run all the sensor wires under the manifold, which helped to neaten things up a bit. As for keeping the dirt off, most of the time it gets a clean every time the car does.
A problem area with the wiring neatness is along the drivers side strut going to the battery, I cant seem to think of how I can neaten that area up without some major work involving relocation of all relays.
I reckon a good starting point would be to give the black plastics a coat of paint if needed, and then give the rocker cover some attention.
Pics will help!
