when you fit full exhaust to BA's they throw up and engine light until you get a tune. so it'd probably be best to do intake side mods etc then do the exhaust and then get a tune

Not quite right mate, the BA's are ok as they only have one o2 sensor, its the BF's that throw up the engine light and thats if you replace the stock cat with a high flow one

Cheers

ive got pacemaker 4490s-100cpi h/flow cat- xforce 2.5" mild steel catback. i love it, not to loud but sounds very nice, this gave a very nice performance kick aswell :D.
go on youtube and search around and listen to some b series falcons that have had exhausts done, most vids are in s**t sound quality but they give you an idea what different set ups sound like
