Instructions said that I should drop the exhaust pipe for installation. This is not required as there is enough flexibility in the rubber mounting to install and torque bolts without dropping the exhaust.
However, the right side bolt hole pattern was off. Two holes did not line up perfectly with the nut plates. To install the rear bolt on the right side, I had to widen the right rear hole slot about 0.040" using a small Dremel grinding wheel in order to get this bolt threaded into the nut plate. This re-op quickly solved the problem, but it took a long time to diagnose this slightly off bolt pattern problem. I suggest the manufacturer check hole slot machining positions on the right side and correct patterns if required.
