Using Dry Ice to Clean a Dirty Engine Block Looks Immensely Satisfying

Cleaning an engine can be difficult. Getting the job done while it’s still in the car means dismantling accessories to reach the metal, reaching into tight spaces, and having to crawl underneath to get to the worst areas. Even if the engine is out of the car, caked-on oil and awkward angles can make scrubbing a pain. Dry ice blasting, a cleaning method that uses compressed air and—you guessed it—dry ice to remove dirt, grime, and stains, eliminates many of those issues.

Larry Kosilla of Ammo NYC was tasked with cleaning up a Rover V-8 from a 1991 Land Rover Defender for a client before it got a refresh and placed back into the SUV. Because the engine wasn’t coming apart for the refresh, Kosilla’s only options were to scrub it by hand using traditional the soap and brush method or use dry ice blasting. He invited Eric Downing of Nu Ice to help him clean the engine the easy way. For the full story, check out this article from Road & Track.
