About to install catback.. anything to watch out for?

Hey guys I am about to install my MBRQ catback (2.5 SVT) tomorrow morning. I am doing it myself, with jackstands. Beyond cutting right behind the muffler to remove the stock pipe is there anything I should watch out for? I have some P'Blaster for the bolts, and am planning on just wreching off the bolts... any help would be appreciated..

you don't have to cut... if you can get the bolts to break loose... then it will all be a cake walk... the bolts seizing is always the biggest problem... i live in pittsburgh... so all the salt and rain and such just like absorbes all over the bolt and makes it like a ball lol... thus having to cut... once you get under there you'll see if you'll have to cut or not...
