Mike, a lot will depend on your motor mounts. As you can see here, clearance between the shaft and header pipes are around 3/8". But, I also have urethane mounts that move very little. The car has since been finished and the shaft has been coated with standard grade automotive paint. There is no sign of any discoloration or burning, but that could also be affected by the header coating...
