I just wrap my altanater with a trash bag, gently rinse under the hood, spray a couple cans of scrubbing bubbles on everything, wait a few minutes, then rinse everything off. Then for drying I use some rags and a leaf blower. And always never on a hot engine.

I real close to two years now since i cleaned my engine last scrubble bubbles is nice. Basically only needed to lightly run water over everything to clean it you can see how shiny my 5 year old coilvers look.

Watch out though where you get over spray it did stain my head lights where have opti-lens covering them.

I just cover up the ugly parts of the engine bay and then wipe down the covers once in a while.

Is there an engine down there somewhere? Just kidding. Yours looks very nice and clean. What exactly are you using for covers, I see Cobb but cant make out the rest?

The alternator and radiator covers are from Gladfab (http://gladfab.myshopify.com/)

The battery and ABS covers are JDM Subaru covers

The one thing I've had the best success with is Scrubbing bubbles in a bottle. Spray down the engine bay lightly with water. Spray the foam let it sit, and wash off, repeat 2-3 times. Engine bay comes out looking brand new every time. Used this both on my WRX and even the Jeep after an offroading trip. Works like a charm
