After the cut, what kind of clamp did you use? Any leaking with such clamps?

The clamps are included with the AA midpipe and also with the VRSF unit.

Update: as luck would have it, of course the midpipe-to-downpipe gaskets didn't arrive even after a week of shipping time, and the USPS has no idea where the package is other than "it will be arriving late". Had to cancel my installation appointment, hoping that by this coming Wednesday (11/13) the gaskets finally appear for my next appointment. If not, I'm going to gamble that the existing gaskets will work, as the midpipe has been sitting in my garage for over a week now.

AA Midpipe successfully installed today - all good, great sound, no more rasp, no rattles. Seems like a tad more power, too. All I have to do now is find someone with a pickup to help me get the stock exhaust home from my Indy shop.
