For gas engines, the blower exhaust intake must be at a low point in the engine compartment. As others have noted, gasoline vapor is heavier than air and extremely explosive.

For diesel engines put it near the top where the heat is concentrated, and if possible near the alternator (which is adversely affected by excess heat).
