Cat back install

What's up everyone? I recently got an American thunder catback exhaust system thanks to a fellow forum member! But I had one quick question, on the drivers side I noticed that the over the axle pipe is sitting about maybe 3/4 to an inch away from a rubber hose I am assuming maybe a fuel line or return line. It looks to have an extra piece of insulation on it near the pipe but my question is will I have any problems with it melting? Like I said its not quite an inch away but I figured since it wasn't touching and it has the extra insulation I should be ok but just wanted to get everyone opinion! I could post a pic later after work if need be thanks everybody.

It will be fine. Mine was that close too and I drove it for over a year with it like that with no problems. This was the same concern I had during install too. You'll be fine. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Thanks again and good luck!

Get yourself one of these vinyl coated hose clamps and a self tapping screw. There's a little flex in that line. You can move it back some and gain yourself another 1/2" of insurance. Cheap solution for absolutely no worries. And your very welcome, I'm glad you like them.

That's a good idea I was thinking about driving around then climbing under the car to see if that hose felt warm or anything if not I may just forget about it since u had no issues.

I had no issues but I always wanted to do this for piece of mind. Just never got to it but I always thought about it.
