LHD 300tdi power steering line exhaust proximity

Hey guys,
Things are coming along nicely with the swap. Not many things to do now.
Since we all know about the oil line cooler fires on the V8s, I was wondering if the 300tdi had any similar issues with the power steering. It looks like one of the power steering lines is fairly close to the exhaust downpipe (~1in.). I was thinking of putting some heat wrap that was on the old gas fuel lines around it, but is that necessary?
I can't recall hearing much about 300tdi fires, so I assume not. But while it's easy to access. Just thought I'd ask.
Thanks,
Pete

Registry
The odd bit of excess Birmabright and some peel and stick thermal insulatio gets you around some of these small issues.

That's the stuff! Amazon has it as well I found. A bit cheaper and no shipping and handling. Thanks for the heads up!
