Default Exhaust vs P/S Ram

Looking at external P/S system for my 1989 Senator 7.4 liter Bravo 1.

Because of the setup of it , the exhaust outlet will dump right on the ram . Maybe 6" or 7" away . Hard to get an accurate measurement because it's stored for the winter . Could be a little farther away , maybe . Concerned about heat even though it's a wet exhaust .

I think you'll be totally fine. I know when I had wet exhaust, the water was never to hot to hold your hand in. Plus, when you are actually running down the lake, there is more water pressure and more exhaust flow, so the water coming out of your tips will be blowing way past the rams. Also, you should run a power steering cooler anyways, so that will fix any doubts about the fluid getting too hot.
