Got myself a 3" downpipe and sports car, fitting today has anyone had fitment issues with it hitting the prop shaft?

Ive had mine on about a month now and not had any fitment issues, but it is pretty close to the hub on the transfer box

Close is about right....there is so little room left in there,that everything gets very tight.

I've never had problems with either the Milltek downpipe,or Nortech system that I have now,but the clearance between downpipe,transfer case,prop shaft coupling and turbo is not large at the best of times.

Very tight indeed. The prop is certainly a pain, did my downpipe one weekend and one on a mates Leon cupra the weekend after and there's so much more room

The extra room from no prop shaft!

I think the transfer case adds problems as well,and we had a lot of trouble fitting the 3582 to my car,in trying to get any sort of clearance at all,but eventually got around it.
