Minimum distance between exhaust and braided stainless fuel line

Is there a rule of thumb minimum distance between exhaust and braided steel fuel line? About 10 after my driver side header collector my fuel feed and return lines cross over the exhaust system, they dont run the length of the exhaust, they just cross over in one spot. There will be about 3-3.5 inches of clearance between the pipe and hoses, I have a Velcro type heat barrier to put around the hoses plus there is a factory aluminum shield that will be under them. I feel this should be a non issue just curious if there is a minimum safe distance. Thanks.

That does not sound like an issue to me as long as they are supported, Especially if you have radiant heat insulation installed.

Heat soak might be a problem on hot shutdown
