Castrol Super Clean...empowerd buys that stuff by the big refill containers. Gamite had his engine bay cleaned with that stuff and it looked so clean you could eat off of it.

yep go with Castrol Super Clean, I used it to and it is damn good.
I spilled like a liter of oil on my trunk carpet I was thinking to throw it a way, but just for fun sprayed some Catrol Super Clean on it. Oil was just "running" away. Wicked stuff!!!. and Engine bay looked nice after it.

Yeah I've used the Super Clean and it works good but I would go for something else. If you go to Canadian Tire and look in the engine cleaners you will find only one cleaner that has two spray can. I don't remember the name but its the only one there with two spray cans. The first one is a cleaner and it takes about 20 minutes to clean and the second one protects your stuff and gives a nice looks to any chrome, aluminum and your hoses, and its lasts much longer than Super Clean I find. Try taht it is the best suff I have ever seen and its only $15.00. If you can't find it write back and I will look for the name of it for you.
