can run off waste exhaust heat. I believe Cadillac were using one.
Stripping heat from your exhaust has a cost too. The hotter your exhaust pipe, the thinner the air, the easier it can be expelled from the system.

Cooling the exhaust will increase its density reducing efficiency.

(Not to say the benefits don't outweigh the cons.)
