distance between exhaust and body

after my header collector goes to 2 1/2 pipe it elbows slightly right under where the firewall bends to become the floor of the car. I wonder how close that could be and not have a floor get to hot? Its only a small length that concerns me, but I want to know before I clamp er up

Maybe something like this http://www.carparts.com/THERMO-TEC-C...=10618-2006315

Think I've seen similar shield for less money but don't recall where. I'm thinking I should put a shield like this around the tail pipes where they go by the fuel tank.

I only got like 3/8 at this one little 2 inch long spot. I wonder if I need anything. If I do what about just a piece of aluminum bigger than the spot to spread and relieve the temp? IF its a prob it should only be at a stand still which is never long for me
