Engine Degreaser

So in anticipation of this nice sunny warm weather, im going to give the car a proper good detail and one of the places that needs a proper good clean is the engine bay

So im after some engine degreaser to eat into the dirt and grime, so does any of you detailing wizards know what degreaser it is best to use?

In my Mini days Mr Muscle foaming oven cleaner was reckoned to be better than any car-specific product.

Don't go mad with the water as there's a lot of electronics to upset.

I've used that and can recommend that too. Watch the mr muscle, they are using these products to clean parts of Douneray nuclear reactor while decommissioning !! See here and here.

I use Meguiars Super Degreaser simply because customers recognise the brand and it it very good, fairly expensive though.
