No, you won't have to worry about anything. The exhaust bolts right up, and you are ready to go. Let the WD-40 sit for about 10 minutes before you start the installation, just to give it time to penetrate the rust. Good Luck!!!

if you exhaust is real rusty like mine was, take the time and spray it for a couple days before you attempt to install it, I had to get a couple of the nuts cut off bc they were rusted so bad.

I had to cut a couple of my bolts too, the ones connecting the cat to the stock cat-back. That sucked. But if you use some PENETRATING stuff and/or wd-40 you'll have better luck.
