S&M driveshaft loop and 4" one piece shaft

Well I pulled the trigger on a driveshaft loop. About a year ago nothing was available for a 4" one piece driveshaft...at least for a manual trans. I reached out to S&M and they said their loop will fit but it is tight. Guess I will see how tight is tight...unless someone already has first hand experience?

I tried to add a driveshaft loop when I installed my DSS driveshaft. It didn't even come close to fitting with a 4" driveshaft installed...

I will be sure to post my results. I remember the Petty DS loop that didn't work with a 4"...couldn't find anything about S&M.

Loop arrived...would it have killed them to send an installed pic?! I can find them for an auto but nothing for a manual. Also, the kit came with various bolts of which 3 are very long...hopefully it is obvious on how to install and where the bolts go.

Ah ok, now I see how it goes.

Well just tried to install the loop and it will work with a 4" driveshaft. Problem is it will not work with the stainless works mid-pipes as they last set of bends sit about 3" closer to the trans cross-member. The SW system uses reducers that allow you to use 2.5, 2.75 and 3 inch catbacks but because of these reducer they have to bring the last set of bends closer. Bummer!
