you could try to do a wire tuck. but they are pretty hard. and youd have to relocate the battery and probably remove or relocate other stuff in the bay as well.

clean it.
This is what I used to do:

1. Cover any electrical or water sensitive components like MAF, battery, coilpacks, CAS, fuse box with plastic bags, cling film and tape to waterproof them

2. Using a hose on gentle trickle, wet down the engine

3. Spray a degreaser over the engine. I used cheap aerosol degreaser but any will do.

4. Using a plastic rat tail brush, scrub the engine down. The rat tail brush lets you get in between the hoses and pipes easily

5. Wash off with the gently running hose. Dry down with compressed air or a rag. Make sure the engine is reasonably dry before starting.

Do not use a high pressure cleaner. It will force water into places it shouldnt go
