I just made a real nice mandrel ss exhaust. When it came back from tig welding it contacts a crossmember it has to go over on my truck. There's really no way to get the pipe through at 3".
How would you make clearence?
You may choose only one
Heat and dent the exhaust
Oval the pipe in a press.
Cut the tube crossmember and try to re weld it flat at the top. Most effort. only 3

The press would be better to shape it. Hitting it will make it ugly

Consensus seems trying to adjust the frame would be bad. Or just more effort then its worth? A c-notch would look best but I'm having trouble pulling the trigger because it will most likely be a huge pain in the ass to cut a circle out of a round pipe on my belly under the truck.

Sounds like you will have to take it off no matter what you do, and if that is the case, even though I love a good hammer smack, just oval it in the vice.
