I donít know of any electronics (practically speaking) that donít live longer if they are kept cooler. Given the proximity to radiated heat from the exhaust, I ran a blast tube. I have a 60 amp, and pointed a blast tube at the heat sink on the back of the alternator.
No real data to support the need however. Perhaps Iíll get some.
