Post exhaust to brake line clearance

I posed this question under a different subject heading, and got no responces. Maybe I'll get better results here.
I have an under the floor mounted, vacuum assisted, dual stage, master cylinder. I am wondering how much clearance I need between my 2.5 inch exhaust pipes, and my brake components? Is there a "rule of thumb" as far as clearance goes for brake lines also? I'd appreciate any constructive input here.
Thanks guys
