Hmmm, that's a good point. It's not constant temperature as almost all the fuel is burned by the time it enters the exhaust system, but the catalyst will definitely reheat it a little at lower load when the combustion efficiency is lower.

I think residual engine coolant should be enough to keep the TEGs from overheating once the car is off. A metal pipe has very little thermal capacity.
