Mark, Don't think you will get an absolute number since everyone decides their own clearances. Some like the gap tighter than others. When I went to the monsters I just had the dremmel available and kept removing material until I was satisfied. I think I ended up removing about 1/2" front and back and maybe 1/4" on the sides.
