There are several different kinds of heat shields that have adhesive backing. Buy the more expensive thicker one or use a few layers of the thinner kind. I know the bottom of the exhaust gets really close to the belly pan on the 3rd gen 10r. You can also wrap the the piece of pipe that gets close with header wrap. The first time I took a brand new 08 ZX10 to the track I hadn't done either of these and melted the belly pan badly. If you are asking this question you are already on the right track.

Speed is nothing unless you know what to do with it.

Its inexpensive and you can double it up if you need to. I also have header tape on my exhaust in a few areas.

I also have A/B plastics and used 3M adhesive spray with DEI heat shield from O'Reilly's auto. Got the shield material on sale for about $50....definitely worth it.
