jeff, i had custom headers made for my conversion...and they were a bit pricey. and, even with these i had to move the water pump and locate to the side. as you know, there is not a lot of room for headers and exhaust. im sure RH can recommend a set that will work without modification to the cradle. need to stay busy on the project so as not to lose summer driving time...spring is on the way here in the south and it cant be too far behind in the frosty Northeast! i would offer a word of advice when installing the radiator. i would make a false bullhead between the radiator and the gas tank that is sealed to the inner fenders and to the hood. this will go a long ways in preventing hot air leaking into the passenger compartment. and, i also removed the dash pad and sealed the holes in the dash sheet metal...obviously not the holes for the gauges and switches!!!

No headers!

After numerous committee meetings various studies and debates to all hours of the night it was decided to: are you ready? "Just die grind the dam thing out" The camaro manifold as mentioned one side is 2 1/2" other side is 2 1/8" so I will bring the latter to 2.5" While as mentioned some headers will work. All options for headers were pricey, and I already have the manifolds. The headers all seem to size up differently so that is an issue also. One other thing you can put in your pocket is all- "The LS1/LS2/LS6/LS7/C5R and LQ heads all have the same exhaust port location and bolt pattern so headers and exhaust manifolds are all interchangable" (truck manifolds cheapest) fit and swap etc.. so 5.7 6.0 interchange ***http://www.z06vette.com/forums/968689-post14.html
The things to watch out for no matter what you use is the RH cradle and or length of header tube. One cheap header set was 26" long as opposed to the manifold is 22" with the longer header tube it starts to get involved with drive shaft and shock NG -Next

We almost have the welding completed, getting ready for the big finish. The front suspension, brakes, steering box, all new or rebuilt etc... We will assemble suspension as a unit, then raise up into the car.

update

Thanks for checking on me guys Among my Family, real estate business, regular job, obligations and priorities this is always pushed to the back. The car is progressing, however its been at a snails pace. I know how to stick weld from HS but I've been relying on friends to help weld up the new suspension pan and battery tray area. The welder is my friends and I'm not familiar with it, but I'm diving in this week at least to tack in whats left. The pan is in but we need to finish up the nose of the car. Although I appreciate the free help from my friends, Its been way to slow for me because of their own priorities which I totally understand.
I do have two additional recommendations to keep in mind. Make sure you can weld yourself, and buy or borrow a welder with shielding gas. In hind site I really think the coil overs are worth the money. If you add up the costs of the stock front/rear suspension and work involved really not worth the bother. My other back burner projects are my 73 Triumph bobber hardtail "El Green Go" - 70 Bertram Bahi Mar 20' w/GM 350/V8 I will get there my friends, I'm very patient these days. (Took about 50 years ) Besides This may be the stable I hold for quite sometime. (I have kids college expenses lurking around the corner) I will post some pictures soon. Thanks

Excellent news Jeff. Keep up the good work. You can get it done. Motivation is difficult to maintain though!

OK, The longest, drawn out, (yes we've had quite a few delays) build ever, is moving forward. Now working on my punch list. I have to go over everything, as I had spotty notes at best. Hoping for a spring fire up! I will throw some pix in soon but my stuff is not to fancy or not so slick. But I will tell you I'm freakin siked to "finish" this Beast, remember folks less is sometimes more. When I figure this car out, I'm gonna own these punk kids. Did I mention socialism, Bernie or God forbid Hillary suck, yeah Socialism is great "until you run out of other peoples money" or the wealthy, and businesses, move out of the country. Vote for whoever the Republican candidate maybe, lets get the country back on track. Besides the Libs/Socialists hate car guys.

Some more work needed to fasten front down with some brackets, then the black trim back on. The gap closes nicely when aluminum piece is pushed down, so with the brackets then black trim it will tighten up. By the way all the shrouding from Renegade had to be trimmed for my application. The side pieces need the bottoms cut to fit the contour of the tub. The top piece front where the gap is was trimmed also. The bracket idea might be ours alone, not sure. The kit is good overall, my stock/modified fuel tank works well, but cost some time & money. Might be good idea to buy the kit tank. You might save on time fussing with the shrouding. But I have not worked with the kit tank. This is just me thinking about this now so not necessarily fact.

Nice fit, with a modified stock fuel tank. Next picture is my new MOMO wheel. I think the Bronze on the wheel with the tan & black interior looks spectacular. The MOMO wheel is awesome, fit an finish, perfect.

We're having a lot of fun finishing this project, my son who is now almost 17 has been helping me knock stuff out, that time spent with him working together was well worth the wait. Yeah I know, I know, he's got his own wheels, a nice VW GTI VR6 6speed. We put a cool Billy Boat SS cat back on it. The car sounds really good, not to loud, but it's really fun, so he's happy. My daughter informed me that after my son leaves for college, I will be teaching her to drive stick in the 911 I gave her quick no thanks kids sheesh

I will post some more pix up soon.
