3" DP heat question

Just installed my 3" down pipe the other day. I haven't driven it yet but I realize that the down pipe is really really close to the transmission cooling lines, almost touching them actually, and I was wondering if this would cause the tranny to overheat or would it be fine? Thanks for any input.

If they are really close, then make sure its not gonna move or try to move it over some. My DP wiggled loose on prom night after some hard driving and put a hole in the line dumping a couple quarts of fluid on the ground.
