two inches should be good. I have the same thing in my basement. I don't think it would get hot enough to start a fire. But I am not going to put the drywall right on the vent either.

Thanks Guys, No I have a 12 by 12 plate decorative plate on the vent that will cover up the area left for clearence around pipe of drywall and make it look good.
