Let me recap:

This needs about a 120-150 degree swing to work, and I don't know how 
well Harbor Freight cutting wheels will handle stainless exhaust pipe. 
I have a KD Tools or whatever equivalent and it's worked for me but I 
wouldn't use it in preference to a Sawzall if I had room.   I also have 
a big Ridgid pipe cutter that I use for loose pipe but it needs 360 
degree access.

A Sawzall will do the job with less access, but you have to be careful 
of what if anything the blade might poke into above the pipe.

To do it with an angle grinder requires either 360 degree access to the 
pipe or a much bigger angle grinder than I want to hold above my head 
(which will probably still need about 150 degree access

A die grinder with a cutting wheel needs 360 degree access and is going 
to be a PITA to deal with on a job like this.
