None whatsoever. It's sort of close to the turbo, but there's a good 3" of air space between them, plus a heat shield between the turbine section and the battery. Also, the hood louver is right above that area, so there should be pretty healthy airflow anytime the truck is making enough power to get the turbo toasty.

Am trying a group 65 instead this time. Just a little weaker, but a lot smaller. That gives it another 1/2" of air space or so.
