Default Clean up the Engine Compartment...?

Okay so i have seen some pics of people with cars like mine but, they have a much neater looking engine compartment. I'm not sure how to do this but i would like to. I have hoses and wires running all over the place as they are still in the stock configuration. How would I make it so that you don't see all of that? Does anyone know of any write-ups done on this?

Its pretty much just a combination of deleting, extending, and trucking vacum lines and wirers. If you don't need to worry about emmissions and do care about A/C. You can delete components such as the A/C, EGR, etc etc. With the egr deleting that removes almost half of the vacum lines cause u lose a vacum solenoid along with the DPFFE sensor. Electric wires u can tuck inside fenders and underneath things but adding length to them, its just a time consuming process and many ways to do it. If you plan on cutting or extending wires I highly recommend to do it the right way by soldering and using heat wrap versus just twisting stuff together and taping it.

Hmmm..... Well i definitely don't care about emissions but I do need my A/C. I guess i will just have to start looking at where to reroute stuff so i know what I am extending and how far.
Thank you for the help!
