You’re right that is close, just looked at mine and it’s much further down and away. I have heat wrap on my exhaust too. I’ve never put it on rubber hoses, but I wouldn’t recommend it. You can buy heat shield tape at your local autoparts store . And Home Depot I believe. I would wrap hose in that. But then again not sure how the adhesive will play with rubber. might be better off getting a hose that doesn’t sit so close. Lol

I was wondering if anyone has ever wrapped their radiator hose in the heat reflective tape or in my case exhaust wrap? I have some exhaust no idea what brand but it seems like the bend is further out than what I've seen from others and it has burned through my radiator hose before. Since then I've wrapped the exhaust itself but I was wondering if doing so to the radiator hose is fine and if anyone has done it. Wasn't really sure if its doable since the wrap is made of fibers that might ruin the hose?

Also before its mentioned yes the exhaust is fully tightened down and cant be adjust much of anything without touching and burning the air box. View attachment 153169
Did you Try flipping the hose? Put the water pump end on the radiator side.

Yea I lied mine is super close too. Haven’t had an issue. But that’s with heat wrap, I’m sure if I took it off it would burn thru. So you should be good with the exhaust wrap too.
