Does anyone have a pic of what need to be cover. I have a arm intake and manga flow exhaust. I know where the filter is for the intake and battery term but I don't know where the other parts you need to cover. Does anyone have a pics??

Chemical Brother's method is about what I do. Some diluted 701 (10:1) and a quick rinse and reverse the hoses on the shop vac! It's a two and half inch pipe with a hepa filter, so lotsa air and no debris! Great for rinsing out the honeycomb and other tight places too! Just have to make note not to wash out all lube off the hood latch.

I guess it depends on how horrible you let it get and just how clean you want it... I usually use "Nonsense" from Chemical Guys and a couple microfiber towels... I've honestly never had any issues spraying things off with water either, but I do try to avoid that except in rare circumstances (such as when spilling coolant or something)...

Just came back from a 3000 mile trip and my engine is full of salt residue what's a proper way to clean it without damaging parts? Or should I take it to the dealer so they can do it ? 2012 civic si sedan
Very carefully. There is no official "proper way". Keep water away from the electrical which is basically all over the engine.

Back in the day we used to pressure wash the engine bay with soap and water, then spray the engine and plastics with armorall tire foam, just dont get that shit on your exterior paint.
Engine bay is alot easier to clean with a cold air intake lol.
