Nothing firm yet but there may be another Blackpool area meet in January.

I think he wants to run his engine in first after fitting the new big end bearings.

Get some autosmart G101, you can use it a different concentrations for different jobs including the engine bay.

It's just an APC, others are available but it's one I'd reccomended if you can get it.

@Legojon @Jimbobcook any recommendations on engine bay cleaners?
It's one of the things I still use Autoglym for... I use their engine / machine cleaner sprayed on and worked in. Then use a water spray bottle to rinse. Then a coat of vinyl n rubber to make it black n shiny.

The autoglym stuff is good but very strong, depending on how bad it is I’d start with a citrus degreaser and if that doesn’t work then go on to something stronger, or that’s what I’d do.

It's not real bad but it's something I failed to do on the fr but as the cupra is going to be long-term I want to do it properly

Yes fairy liquid is the stuff you need but be warned you need to do this clean away from your house or you will end up with a black puddle of grease, oil and general grime on the driveway.
