I've got the engine out and would like to clean everything up before I put it back it. What's the best degreaser to use to make everything look new again?? Has anyone used anything with an acid in it to clean the engine compartment? We have some acid bath stuff that we use on semi trailers to give the aluminum a shiny look

Morado made by ZEP. Stuff is awesome. Doesn't appear to harm plastic either. I maintain a fleet of about 50 vehicles and use it daily. Super Clean by Castrol is a consumer product that is very similiar. Its good as well.

We have an industrial product called Grand Slam that works very well and doesn't harm plastic. I mix it around 50/50 in a spray bottle, let it sit for 10 mins then hit it with the pressure washer. Scrape all the heavy crap off first.
