Sorry, everybody. Maybe I'm just lazy (or a jerk), but I don't get the engine wash business. Question: Why wash the engine? I think you're asking for trouble when you use high-pressure wash under the hood. I use shop rags and elbow grease to keep my engine compartment clean. Oh, you can't eat off of the block or anything like that, but anyone looking under the hood will understand that the car is cared for. The only time I'd even consider a high-pressure wash is if I was going to show the car, and that's not likely to happen in my lifetime. I've heard the horror stories about high-pressure wash, too, and I'm sure the victims took what they considered reasonable precautions. Still, they wound up with big-time problems. I'd stay away from high-pressure washes under the hood. You're just asking for trouble.
