Default Installed New Exhaust/Heat shield remove?

Can you guys/girls help me on this?
Well, I just installed greddy evo exhaust system two days ago. Now, it's making disturbing sound whenever I turn or accelerate hard. From my observation, I think it is coming from heat shield vibrating due to its contact with greddy's mid-pipe. Yes, I checked. Small portion of the Greddy's mid-pipe is completely touching that heat shield. What should I do? Should I remove or hammer that heat shield a little bit?

Your advise and comments will be very appreciated. Help. It's making me a little nervous.

So, did anyone remove the heat-shield at the mid-pipe?
I mean, is it a regular or common thing to do when you up-grade your eshaust?
I think I installed it really well. Everything fit well except that heat shield.

Default no problems here

put in my evo exhaust a few months ago and no problems, which way did you tighten the bolts? From the cat back or from the muffler to the cat? I had to play with the hangers a bit and when I tightened it up it pulled away from the heat shield. I tightened mine from the cat back.

doogdog,

You mean there shouldn't be such problem expected from greddy evo for wrx? That is good to know. May be I installed mine not so well as I thought.
I tighten mine from catback to muffler. May be I should reinstalled it before I hammer or cut off anything.
I did not receive instruction sheet from my order. Can answer me a few question?
There is no need to reuse stock bolts and springs right? I didn't. I'm little worry if I did this wrong now.

thanks

Lightbulb Heat Wrap

Wrap it with some heat wrap material. I wrapped my up pipe and down pipe all the way to the muffler.
