Hey guys, I've started labeling my engine bay to get a better understanding, etc etc.

So far this is all I could come up with, although there are a few more things but I wasn't 100%.
If you could take this pic, add a few more things to it; that would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Ah yeah how could I forget alternator and coil packs, thanks mate.
Flash lube is for gas converted cars, it's not necessary to have it topped up but it protects valve seats, cleans injectors and apparently increases fuel economy.

black module to left of ABS is Cruise Control, 2 hoses to right of ABS are heater hoses, in front of your flash lube is water pump, square thing directly after your airbox is MAF sensor, there is plenty of stuff just depends on how much detail you want to go into, at end of top radiator hose is thermostat housing in front of plenum, maybe mark that for bleeding system

Lol dip stick is not so important, thanks though
It isnt? you have powersteering fluid marked, radiator cap, coolant, flash lube, wiper fluid, all these fluids marks, and leave out the most important, engine oil?
