My 2p... I have never fitted or seen one fitted to GC8 but here's what I see from the pics on the net...

From the pics i've seen i'd be surprised if that back box is an easy fit to classic. It appears to be hung from the forward (blue in the snapshot below) and right hand hanger (green); which on newage is fine but for classic that forward hook wont catch the classic hanger, leaving it held by the one on the right hand side. Its usually possible to fit newage systems to classics using only the red and green circled hangers and either removing or bending the blue one. But in this case i'd be inclined to think itll be more work than just a swap out you can do on a driveway. A custom exhaust shop however should be able to hang it no problem.

Yeah, theyre different lengths but fit up to the turbo the same.

The way around that is to either fit newage downpipe and cat/cat delete pipe. or a newage aftermarket down pipe that incorporates both down and cat pipe length in one.
