That's one of those things that even if it doesn't cause damage right away it would be a long term durability issue if there is not sufficient clearance to prevent the lines/ hoses from being damaged by the heat.

It might be ok now, but there was shielding over the stock manifold to protect the other under hood components for a reason.

Well then they had better get wrapping, its still completely exposed in those pictures minus the heater coolant lines which were already wrapped.
