Guilty question

Hey guys.
I've done something I know I shouldn't have done.....
I brought a cheep set of header pipes for my klze lantis, which bolted on easily enough, but it touches the sump. Its been like that for a while now......

What sort of damage could that be doing to my engine?? All that heat?

Easy solution find someone who has a oxy and heat the pipe so you can move it away from the sump.

BTW the only thing that it may do if left will either wear through the header pipe or sump
