My 924 is fairly clean und3r the hood but... cleaner is needed for car shows and it appears to be a daunting task.
First, what can I clean the "spotted" tired looking cast alum with? (No grease just age spots)
Second, there is some black dirt under the exhaust manifold on what I presume to be the "head", How do I get to that easily to clean?
Brings up another ? Is this engine a half of a v8?
Third, what tips do you have to share for this endeavor?

Brake cleaner and toothbrush is a nice combination to get stuff clean. Chrome polish paste can solve alot of problems aswell.

Its half of a 928 engine, kind of

Any aluminum part that can be removed can be vapor honed back to original forging condition; i.e. looks brand new.

Look into dry ice cleaning. Works really well and won’t damage plastics or rubber.
