Lets see those CLEAN engine Bays!

Alright guys, we always see the outside of everyone's truck after they wash it an whatnot, but we never see the engine. As I will be washing my engine tomorrow, lets see those clean engine bays!

oooo nice. I took out the MAC intake. It was pulling a lot of hot air. Put the stock one back on with a Fram Airhog filter and did the silencer removal mod and it seems to pull much cooler air....so I'm liking the setup you got there Dustin.

My question is, has anyone taken it out to the mud, and tried getting that "brand new" look out of it... Life's a *****, I still dont have quite all of it out... its pretty clean considering tho.



I will gladly accept information on how to get the rest of the mud out... i've pressure washed it 4 times, GUNK decreased it once, and simple green with degreaser 2 times... still have stuff hidden...

i spray the engine cleaner out of the wand on the car wash, make sure it doesn't dry, close the hood, proceed to wash the rest of the truck, and go back to rinse it off after the rest of the truck is clean... pressure and lots of water boy!
