Depends on what you feel comfortable doing. I won't lie, every vehicle I've owned, I've washed the engine at the car wash with the engine running, and standing on the front bumper blasting it with high pressure. I've had a lot of people tell me I've been lucky to never crack a block or damage anything. Keep in mind this is on relatively leak free engines and oem air intakes, no exposed air filters.
Now my 7.3, I have attempted to clean the engine a few times but the oil/gunk is caked on heavily. I'll probably end up spending a day taking stuff off and cleaning everything with scrub brushes and degreaser. (OReilly's Foamy Engine Degreaser is awesome for this kind of work).
