yeah brotha... steam is bad for your engine harness... but bomb the **** out of it with Easy Off, let it set for a bit and then gently hose it off... see results

Sorry to thread interject. But is there a "simple way" to get most of the crap off, out of my engine bay? I know a lot of elbow geese, but I've got 2004-145k worth if crap....
This is the DIY I've been using since it was posted waaaay back in the day...

DIY Cleaning the engine compartment

My engine is by no means a trophy winner, but it looks like this all the time, and I have around 135k on my 04:




Simply clean. I'm good with it.

But you do have an S/C to go with it.

Alas, I only have the filter. I had it for so long my engine bay looks weird to me without it (like smog time).

Hi! ZumCRX1
I noticed difference at lower rpm and made my car bit quicker.
Not sure about HP & torque gain, but it looks shiny and I like it.

I just passed Colorado emission test & visual inspection at Denver.
But I don't see any carb legal budge on intake manifold. :confused:

Shot from the other side. I took a corner today on 3 wheels. I've been running hoodless mainly due to the stupid amount of heatsoak the intake mani gets. Going to be ordering thermal intake and TB gaskets soon to remedy the issue. I feel the car is at the point to where piggy back management is going to be required before I start adding more power.
