Is it really rusted that bad? Just unscrew the flange bolts and pull it off, attach new back box.

best taking the flange from the back box and welding it to yours then, at least it is easily removable in the future that way!

My sportex system has flanges at every point =/

Will also likely cost less than 30 to get it done by an exhaust garage
