Considering most engines run exhaust gas temp at about 300 degrees at idle and can run as high as 2000* F under load, it's actually pretty easy to cook in an engine bay if you use the exhaust side. Have you ever seen headers turn bright red on a car when put under WOT conditions? It's pretty impressive.

I've thought about it, but never done it. I did hear that it was possible. It just seems like a bit of a hassle when short on time on a long trip.
