Need some opinions here... I have a couple small peltier devices out of a water cooler with some nice heat sinks and fans... I was thinking :lol3: the flat top of the stock air horn would make a good spot to mount one.

My main question is, do you think the heat from the engine transferring up the intake and meeting an extremely cold spot where the peltier is would stress the metal and crack it? I drove the truck around a bunch today then popped the hood and felt the top of the intake and it wasn't too warm, of course today was a cool day. But the cold side of the peltier is very cold. Probably below zero.

Second, do you think a peltier would eventually spread the cold through enough of the intake body to make a difference in the air passing through it?

And what is the intake, cast aluminum?
