Just remove and install. ZZP's so called rotated mounts are really just stiffer mounts in the factory location so you only have to support the engine not change it's position like real rotated mounts. Why anyone buys these mounts are beyond me, I'd return them and get Powell's mounts which are actually rotated and high quality for a comparable price.

As with most things, you get what you pay for.

So it's $10 more for Powell's mount front mount which is actually rotated and if it's an LNF theirs no point in getting the rear mount since it's already stiffer so it seems to me like Powell's mount is cheaper while being better...

^^This. The main reason to change out the mounts is to rotate the engine. The stock lnf mounts are plenty stiff. I'm a big ZZP fan myself, but in most cases if Powell sells the same part, his is better at a comparable price.
