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:
IMO it's not a huge flip side. If you can't get a brush to an area, you probably shouldn't be dousing it in caustic chemicals. :p
AA Stg2+ 325xiA? Are you stupid? Maybe a little.
I can program cars fo' freeee near Salt Lake City. PM for details.
