Post G-Body Crossmember

Does anyone know if GM had a transmission crossmember for their 80s G-Body line for true dual exhaust and the 200R4 transmission? I bought a 200R4 three years ago because of its ease of replacement with a 350TH. The project was placed on hold and then cancelled. I recently bought an '86 El Camino with a "fire-breathing" 305 and a 200 transmission. The 305 has to go and the 200R4 is still in the corner of the garage. Any info on crossmembers is appreciated.

Dynomax makes a complete system for 78-87 monte's(regal,grand prix,cutlass)pipes are $100.$94 for headers and $60 two mufflers.Thats what I finally put on and I love it.
Tried o find double hump x-member never could.Used to have strait pipes w/ glasspacks.Mufflers practicaly hit the ground and collectors never ever sealed.
Dynomax system is bent right around the x-member and clears great.Doesn't hang low or hit any thing.Exits at the bumper.

Thanks Monte. Is the Dynomax system 2" or can you get bigger? For the time being I'm dropping in my "Old Faithful" 350 (Always runs good and been in four different cars) just to get it back on the road. I'll plumb it through the OEM system until I can upgrade. Choke! I was going to put my "in-progress" 406 in, but it has a left dipstick which doesn't clear the OEM manifold.

My system is 2 1/4".As far as I know thats the only size.But for a mild street 350 it works grea6t for mine.
I've got one of those "old relable 350" just waits for me to grenade somthing so she can go back in.
One thing these systems don't have cats.So watch for environmentalists picketing around your car.

I figure the pipes from the headers should bolt up and then just hang the mufflers befor the rear and put down spouts.The tailpipes might fit but I dought they would be long enough to exit at the bumper. But I'd still ask Jeg's about it.

Monte,
Just went to the Jeg's site and they have a $100 "Special" on the pipes. I'll have to call them about the rear pipes since they don't have an on-line tech service. Thanks.
