I know some people like that stuff, but personally I hate engine detailer with every bone in my body. All it does is attract dust (I live in the desert about 3/4 mile off pavement) and leaves a greasy finish which just makes even minor work or routine maintenance project messier than they need to be.

Try it out dude you'll love it. Nothing sucks more than busting your ass detailing your car only to have water drip out from some stupid little spot later on (I can think of several areas too; under the tail lights, headlights, the door mirrors, the little reflectors on the 1/4 panel area.....). Go over your entire car with it, you'll be amazed how much water is hiding out in these little spots.

Westly's white wall cleaner made by Black magic is really good for cleaning engine bays. i use it on my 07 GT. Damp your engine bay a little,spray it on, wait a couple of minutes and spray off. after you spray it on, if you have a lot of dirt and grim, you can also scrub the engine bay if you need to and then spray off.

Heres what my motor looks like.



Gorgeous... simply gorgeous. There's hope for my 96GT yet!
