brake lines next to headers

After running all new brake lines for my new IFS I found out that
the brake line at one point is only 1/2 inch from my headers.
Maybe 1/2 inch of the line at most.

Can this cause a problem.

Don't think that it will hurt, but I would move it if I could......

If there is no room to move it, you could possibly look at making a little heat shield for it, the boiling point of brake fluid isn't very high when you consider the heat that header will be dealing with.

Just my 2 cents (canadian, 1.76 cents american )

I`ve been told that it will cause high line pressure, hard pedal with no braking effect, mine is two inches away and they said it would happen, well it has`ent yet, that was three years ago, but yours being a lot closer would raise concern. Like Chris said if you can`t move it shield it !
