    Probably an aftermarket el-cheapo
    There was an exhaust that was on the lt-1's that was called single on the left or 2 on the left(SOTL). It was one of the best flowing oem mufflers made for the 4th gen (i'm sure the slp lm1 flows better). The tips however are polished and the muffler itself is probably rarer than the slp blackwing lid.

    All `98 SS and WS6 cars recieved the GM SOTL set up, the SLP Dual Dual was the extra cost option (for the SS only) The Old SLP TOTL system debuted in 1991 on the Original Firehawk and again in 1994 on the 4th Gen Hawk (`93's got a different setup).

    BTW I have a SOTL turndown but mines 3.5"

    the 2004R uses the corporate pattern so it will be able to be used for a 350tpi. you may need to buy a new tv cable.

    The 2004R's are a much better tranny than the 700's or even the 4L60's. They are extremely popular for swaps, the turbo buick guys still use them in 8 or 9 second cars when they are built right. They have a better gear spread than the 700/4L60 that is better suited for the drag strip with a 2.75 first gear. It has less RPM drop on the 1-2 shift and it doesn't hit the tires as hard with the softer first gear.

    Some of them came with your standard BOP bell housing but most of them do have the universal bell housing so they can easily be swapped over to a chevy. Remember the 84-86 Monte Carlo SS's came with this trans as well.

    They are physically the same length as a 350 turbo,,,so no driveshaft mods are needed, which is what makes them a popular swap. You will however have to move the crossmember back about 3 inches since the mount is towards the very end of the tailshaft on a 2004r.
    The shift linkage is also moved inward a small amount, so if you are adapting this to a column shift car, you'll have to modify your linkage slightly, but it can be made to work.
    The other stuff like torque converter lockup wiring and TV cable are pretty straight forward with different kits on the market to adapt to just about any car.

    Edit: Oooops, I just realized you want to swap this into a newer 85 camaro. Leave it to me,,,I'm always thinking about old cars

    In which case you run into more problems. In an 85 camaro it probably started life with a 700R4,,,so your driveshaft is going to be too short for the 2004r. You will have to have a new driveshaft made for that application.
    I'm not real sure what else you are going to run into because it sounds as if the car has been messed around with already,,,,,GM didn't have 350 TPI's in 1985 yet.
