You'll probably have afr issue's.
Yup.

The AFR readings on your wideband (and his tailpipe wideband) will be bogus until the leak is fixed.

A wideband is an oxygen sensor in the exhaust stream. When you have an exhaust leak, it lets stray oxygen from the atmosphere enter the exhaust stream making the readings lean depending on how large the exhaust leak is.
