Bathroom Venting


I am trying to properly vent my bathroom vent/heater with very little space. The existing 4" flexible metal tubing runs horizontal from the vent/heater in the ceiling, then down to an exterior wall cap. I have 4" from the outside wall to the interior drywall and the flexible metal tubing sticks out too far, past where I want to hang my drywall. (There was a header previously that hid this vent, but now the header is gone). Is there a 90 degree piece of sheet metal that does not extend past 4" that I can use, connecting the exterior wall cap and connector duct to the rest of the flexible metal tubing? OR can I use plastic flexible coil and smoosh it towards the exterior wall?

Need anyone's help on this. Can I cut the connector duct that extends 8" from the outside wall cap to about 4" long? THe flexible tubing then will be connected to this shorter connector duct, going to the bathroom vent. Again, I am trying to fit this ALL into the wall, behind the drywall, but the 8" connector duct was sticking out too far. Thanks!
