    Looks good. You should always start by blowing the engine with air. This is very useful to remove loose dirt and leaves and stuff like that. Then clean the underside of the hood. Removing the battery is useless IMHO. And you miss the opportunity to clean the battery when doing this. Also when you spray Hyperdressing, try to avoid any belts. It could make them slipery and that is not a good thing.

    Other than that, good job. Engines looks really good.

    Removing the battery “could” zero out some ECU’s in higher end vehicles, Audi particularly.
    There are OBDII memory minders, but reviews have the work 50% of the time.

    Yes, I see youtubers pretty much always recommending to disconnect the battery when cleaning the engine. I have done probably 50 engine cleanings in the last few years and I have never disconnected the battery exactly for that reason... it can cause a lot of issues with radios needing to be re-programmed, memories for things like seats loosing their data, and so on.

    I had issues twices and both times was water getting passed failed seals on the coils and getting inside the spark plug wells. That created misfires on 2 of the 4 cylinders the first time around and was resolved by blowing the water out and using dielectric grease on the spark plugs. The second time around it killed one of the ignition coils and i had to replace it for the client.

    So now I try to use as little water as I can on the actual engine block. I use water on the inside fenders and firewall and where the radiator it generously, but when I get to the actual engine block, I use just enough to rinse quickly. Then I use compressed air to blow the water away.
