While stainless doesn't rust, it does gall when subjected to exhaust heat, and pretty badly. I've used stainless hardware, and while you can remove it, it isn't ideal for this application, and can almost never be reinstalled. Auto suppliers sell exhaust specific nuts (copper, iirc) that are better for this application.
