Cleaning Your Engine Bay

Found this website a while back...any thoughts about this video: Cleaning the Engine Bay Detailing Video ? Do you guys think it would be safe to hose down our engine bays?

I've done it before no problem (My engine is 100% stock though) Some guys like to cover the fusebox with plasic, but I've never done that as I never run high pressure water in my bay. I also double check real quick to make sure everythings sealed up tight (Like dipstick, oil fill cap, EXC)
Like the sexy lady said though, take into concideration any aftermarket stuff you have, and how the water will effect it.

Mine is stock as well, no aftermarket parts here. I was just curious. Thanks!

It'll be fine. If the engine wasn't suppose to be wet everyone would be screwed when it rains. I always cover the fuse box though just in case.
