    That it is! When you use the pure concentrate... it'll clean/degrease anything. It's pretty crazy.

    Well I'll be sure to grab that next time. I was going to buy that stuff, but the stupid guy at autozone wouldn't shut-up about engine degreaser that came in a can. It worked but my engines gonna stink for a couple of days now. Alright cool, cause I had to make a run to the store and when I got back in my car and put in the clutch, I heard that noise and I something went horribly wrong. (Being in AZ we dont get rain so I've never had this problem haha)

    Thanks Pat. Lol, this is exactly what they said at ForcedAirTech. Very happy with the results. I covered the fuse box, alt, and air filter with safeway bags to be on the safe side.

    working on black out headlights now.

    Nice... Simple Green is incredible

    I've been told that I had an extremely clean engine bay by tuners before... now that's a compliment in my opinion! Gotta love the Simple Green!!

    that does look nice....where did you get that? I have also thought about replacing the cover entirely with the carbign carbon fiber one. It looks sweet, just need to justify spending 100 on engine dress.

    Nahh, i read that its not the best idea to use one, just used the garden hose (has a spray nozzle) and a toothbrush for the stubborn areas. SG does a great job itself at braking down grime.
