Top Secret lol.

It's actually quite easy. I use the following method.

Cover the relevant parts you don't wish to get water in, alternator etc
Warm the engine for a few mins - cold engines don't like water. by warming it it'll help the water to evaporate off and not sit in places.
Apply Megs Super Degreaser or similar and leave to dwell for 3 - 5 mins
Apply another round of msd and then gently, very gently, aggitate with a long bristle, soft brush, inc the intercooler. Just be very carefull!
Start the engine again and rinse with the open end of a hose or pressure washer on it's lowest pressure setting. Don't use full pressure as it'll bend the fins on the intercooler and can push water in where you don't want it.
Repeat until it's as clean as you want it to be.
If you have a compressor, use the air attachment to blow off excess water, if not leave the engine to idle until the water has evaporated off
turn the engine off and mop up water from places where it won't evaporate from or you can't blow it out of
Aapply 303 Aerospace protectant to the plastics

Depending on how dirty the bay is, it should take anywhere from 30mins to several hours.

This method won't be to everyones taste but it's served me well on 30+ engine bays and never let me down. The only time I had a problem with the water was when I didn't have the engine running on an old Ford escort and water got into the plugs. Just had to wait for them to dry out then all was ok.

Wait, have I missed something here...

Have you made some panels up to cover your inner wings?

If so, great idea.
