Advice on cleaning engine

Anybody have some tricks to share on cleaning the engine? In particular the aluminum parts. I am getting ready to put my engine in the chassis and I want to clean it before I do. I usually use Super Clean but I'm looking for something better. Maybe some detail tricks??

it's not fun, but get a pack of wire brushes and box of brake kleen. sit there and go to town.

Land Rovers are by far the best looking 4x4 on the back of a flatbed...

I just rebuilt my top and, the machine shop painted my heads and valve covers with off the shelf aluminum colored spray paint after they were sand blasted. They look great!

I bought some more paint and painted the plenum, intake and block so everything matches. The parts I painted myself i cleaned with Superclean and wire brushes.
