Installation was pretty straight forward. I love how the kit doesn't require any drilling, welding, or fabrication. A provided special bracket gets installed between the front sub-frame and the exhaust hanger for the front of the plate. The middle of the plate utilizes the bolts for the drive shaft center bearing. The rear portion of the plate is fastened where there is an OEM chassis brace. One does need to trim the OEM heat shield a bit so the shield will sit flush against the bearing bracket, not a big deal.
I ran into clearance issues with the OEM chassis brace at the rear. I was able to pinch the offending OEM brace with a bench vice. The very front of the the brace bolts to the fore mentioned bracket that is sandwiched between the sub-frame and exhaust hanger The holes in the plate need to be ovaled like an extra 1/16th of an inch.
I really want to wrap the exhaust system in thermal wrap or get it ceramic coated. The reason being all the heat in the exhaust system is not in a mostly enclosed chamber and I'd rather not have all that extra heat trapped in the car.
