Brazil you say Cesar! I tell you what, I'll pick up a few extra sets for you free of charge. All you'd have to do is purchase a round trip ticket for me and I'll personally deliver them to you! Deal? ;-p

I got word back from VCG. They do ship worldwide so all the international guys will have no issues.

I've got the package with me and I'll mail it on my lunch break tonight. I just have not been able to slip off to the PO before work. In a recent email with VCG, once they receive the parts it'll take them a couple of days to make the molds. They'll send me pics of the first couple out (a shot of the parts and one assembled). If all looks good, they'll be ready to order. So if all goes well, we're looking at early to mid next week as to when you can start placing orders.

I'd be in for a couple. He should make some long tube headers too.

Headers are, more often than not, application specific. Even in scale, where we have some room to fiddle with making things fit, it would be difficult to make a one-size-fits-all set of headers. A set of shorty, street rod style of headers would be doable but incorrect for most applications. There are also plenty of tutorials out there for making headers from solder.

I would be interested in this with the AUTOMATIC trans ! Headers or exhaust manifolds too, even though I know they may be application specific....If I'm going to put this engine in an older Chevy, the exhaust port spacing does not match up to the older manifolds or tubing headers....'Z'

I've had a couple of PMs and emails inquiring about an automatic transmission. The most current GM automatic for the would be found in the Revell '10 Camaro SS. I've got one that I've never opened so I'll hack the tranny off that kit and send it along with the T-56 six speed.

As far as exhaust manifolds go, the ones closest in layout to those of the 60s-70s with the four ports dumping into a common log that turns down near the firewall can be found in the Revell Silverado. One of the hands has a heat shield molded into it. I have not looked at the '10 Camaro SS manifolds to see if they are any better. The C5 and C6 mainfolds are kinda funky in where the flange turns down to meet the exhaust and I don't remember exactly what the 98-02 F-body manifolds look like exactly other than the didn't look right compared to the vintage manifolds. I'll do some digging and post pics for input from you guys.

Just got word from Manny at VCG that the master for the LS7 has finally arrived at his shop. As soon as the molds are a go I'll get up some pics and they'll be ready to take orders.

My wife's grandmother passed away this week so I've been tied up with family business. I will get the masters for the six-speed manual (T-56) and automatic trannies (6L80 from the '10 Camaro SS) out as soon as possible along with the exhaust manifolds. The trannies will be correct for not only the LS motors but also traditional SBCs and BBCs.

I just got off the phone with VCG. They had sent me some pics of the first parts out over the weekend but the email never made it to my phone. Everything looks good in the pics he sent me and he wants to get some better ones to post here. They will be ready to take orders on Monday the 24th so that he has some time to build an inventory to fill the first rush of orders.

After talking with him, they will be available as the full motor with a manual, full motor with the automatic as well as having the two trannies available as a stand alone item.

I'll get the new pics up as soon as they hit my inbox.

VCG's website is here. I know that the crate motor with the manual tranny is ready to go as I have seen the test shots. The automatic will be ready soon. He had me post next Monday as the official release date so that he has this week to build inventory and be ready.
