Absolutely, and I figured we were talking about the rinse, after a degrease and soak; but yeah the degreaser goes without saying.
Can't imagine the pressure it would take to clean an engine bay with straight water.

Doing this at home will also allow you to clean the engine while it's cool allowing you to let the degreaser soak for a few min. without it evaporating so quickly on a hot engine.

I guess on the flip side the gunk in the engine bay is loosened up by a warm engine, so:
