I installed the Peco big bore system, from header
all the way back and including the rear box.
Extremely easy to fit with the engine in place.
Only the center pipe may confuse you as it can be fitted
both ends forward...only one way fits nearly perfectly.
Straighten that out and its a no brainer installation.

Four, no almost 5 years later and 35K+ miles it is still
holding up great.  The rear box is still red (orig Peco paint)
 I do believe though, that as stock as my BGT is
the Peco system is a bit large. (not enough backpressure)
(I feel the low end is lacking a bit)
