Truck is operated in a winter climate. Exhaust is in good shapeonly 50M on a 2002 Tundra. However the connection a the converter is pretty corroded. I sawed the clamp off and still trying to disconnect the pipe before I order from you. The question is, do you use the same type of OEM connection, or, can I saw the pipe and connect the new inlet in some other way?

The instructions for the MagnaFlow exhaust, # MF15809, which I have linked for you, state that you will need to use the OEM clamps to secure the new exhaust to the 2002 Toyota Tundra. If that clamp gets damaged, you will need to get replacement.
Since the new exhaust is stainless steel, you get the benefit of having superior corrosion resistance but you will not be able to weld it on. If at all possible, leave the pipe the clamps is attached to intact. If you end up damaging that pipe, if it is directly attached to the header, you would need to replace that part as well.
