Default underhood WI parts.. safe to get wet?

I was just curious how the typical underhoods parts resist water. When I clean my engine bay, I spray it all down with simple green and then use the .25 cent car wash wand set to "spotless rinse" and spray it all down clean. Are water injection parts safe for this kind of thing? specifically, Coolingmist boost pressure switch, checkvalve, wiring relay, inline fuse holder etc. I don't want anything to zap and short out, then I lose injection and pop a motor.

I would say if in doubt put a baggie or plastic wrap on them while you clean under the hood and avoid direct spray.
With the controller all I have under the hood is the pump, I sprayed mine down (pump) without covering it. I also used jelly belly wire connectors when I wired it up. If you dont know these are connectors filled with oil or jelly based substance.
I did not have a problem.

I was thinking of making an enclosure, or just putting the relay and associated wiring inside the fender to avoid heat and direct water. thoughts?

Still a lot easier to just cover with a plastic bag before washing and avoid direct spraying. We are only talking about a few parts,
Before I got my commander I had all Of my electrical parts in the glove box. My new setup with the commander is great also.

Everything under the hood is made to be cleaned by a pressurewasher... Even the factory air box.... Unless you have a car with a distributor, don't worry... (or an aftermarket intake.. in that case just wrap it before you spray it)

ouch! But yes, I was referring to WI kit parts like relays, fuses, etc. At the minimum I will try to place these things in the fender, to clean up the engine bay as much as possible.
