Cement board may be a better choice for the shower walls. I am not an expert. Maybe someone else can provide an opinion.

Beerdog has a point. Proper procedures for shower walls will be different. They need a level of waterproofing that the regular walls don't. To get accurate advice people here need to know what walls you are talking about.

Can you progressively furr out the wall opposite the tub side, to the corner? May not work if ever installing tile or pattern on floor where it would be noticeable... Will not work at door.
Could cheat 1/4" by dadoes at the back of drywall exactly at high side of pipe, utility knife and chisel/gouge. Only 1/4" off in end.

i would ask does this pipe go all the way back to the other wall or is there some working room if so set back the duct work or you can replace it with a more friendly unit that will fit inside your wall
see how that works for ya

Almost, but there is the floor joist that is holding it up from moving back any farther. I already looked at that situation.
