muddy engine what to use to clean?

so i had a party and got a little to drunk and passed out but my older brother decided to steal my truck and go bash it behind our house and the next morning my engine was covered in mud, well the whole truck was but the engine was BAD i washed off as much as i can but its like it burnt on, what can i use to get the mud off?

dont worry i got back at him he has a real nice 04 gti vr6 modded o the max. and man that thing will do burnouts forever and the e-brake is very responsive.

Do not start the truck, if you have a pressure washer then, park the truck the night before where your going to wash it. Then in the morning when the engine is cold, go out there and wash it with the pressure washer.

Spraying a hot engine with cold water can cause damage to the cylinder heads.

Grease off de-greaser is the best stuff I have ever used. We use it at work!

I use degreaser on mine as well. You can get the Super Tech brand from WalMart for about $2 a can and 1 can should be all you need. It foams up when you spray it so just let it sit and soak in then wash it off with a pressure washer or at the car wash.

303 Its somewhat of a miracle product. It does everything from your dash to your wipers to your engine. My boss sprays it all over his engine, runs it through a ride through car wash and the engine looks detailed. Good **** IMO
