It really all comes down to elbow grease for the hard spots. I take plastic grocery bags over the intake, and a few areas where the electronics to keep from getting too wet.
If you got a lot of dust, dirt and nothing really too bad then WD-40 and just wiping it off works really well. Simple green (pretty good concentration over water) works great on an overall clean job. I've used Purple power, and Grease lightning too, they're all about the same. Enginebrite works alright too.
I usually get a little wet, degrease, rinse off, degrease again then rinse off real good. Let dry for a bit then you're good to go. Be very selective where you get water, don't want to get stuff too wet.
There's a few good engine shines out there, Turtle Wax CD2 is pretty good once you've done the degrease part of the job.
