Washing an engine
With an LS1 engine there's a lot of wires and stuff take should not get wet, so what this the correct way of washing an LS1 engine? (a video would be nice).

I should have video'd myself as I just did this. Should be good for a year now . Just avoid the battery, and the intake manifold. Everything else can be sprayed wet. On a cold block, in my garage, I used an APC ( all purpose cleaner ) not a engine block degreaser as painted and plastics may suffer. Agitate surfaces with a soft bristle brush and rinse it in a bucket of clear water. Then rinse the under-hood and the places you cleaned. I blow dryed the engine bay with my stihl leaf blower, focused real good on the intake manifold as water puddles formed around the injectors, let it sit the rest of the day hood up in the garage. After dinner I went out and hit it all up with a trim dressing to get the plastics looking slick and new.
Next day car started up no issues or aromas at all.2000 Trans Am WS.6 M6
