I work at Honda and we have a bad ass engine steamer and some degreaser. Now that is the best way to clean your motor. If you decide to go that route make sure your car is on, and if you have an intake make sure you cover it...

(Cover intake) keep engine running and hose it down with water, soak it with scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaner, take a rag to it, rinse and enjoy

Its best with steam as it is already hot and all. The hose at home can get cold and you can ruin something easely.... just saying.
