    I'd say CD2....if the engine bay is really dirty, then I'd go with Simple Green first and CD2 to finish it up. However, as mentioned in the previous post, absolutely make sure you dilute the Simple Green!!! To be on the safe side, I use 2 parts water to 1 part SG...

    CD2 is only like a dressing for a clean engine, EB1 (Gunk Engine Brite) is what ya need first or simple green, then hit a dry engine with CD2 to detail it out.

    Engine bright is more of a cleaner.......... Will do little for appearance...Other than making it look clean.. I think people may be looking for more of a top coat. Though I don't know if I read it right.

    I plan on cleaning my bay by using some of the stuff in this thread but am worried about what you just said. What did you do wrong you think? Did you hose some sensitive areas? too much water pressure?
