Nope... not yet. When you add it to your cart, it displays that the item will backorder upon ordering.

We are getting closer though.

With their history of high shipping prices, I would love to know the shipping charge of that item...

Well, the price on GM's website is about $2000 less than the price I saw on Ebay. It's also about $2000 less than I saw that a vendor sold one for so I guess, they have $2000 room for shipping...LOL :D

I thought they were going to sell for 11K or something close to that.

After all the C6 Z06 fireworks and the rush is over, they probably will. Maybe not from GM but, vendors and such

What oiling system does it come with? Is it still a dry sump or are the crates converted to wet sump? $12k is a good price for 500 reliable hp and I assume a GM warranty.

The engine is going into a 98 C5 with one of those '53 looking retro body kits. Performance wise the car is bone stock. It's a show car, so everything is spotless inside and out. Unlike when I tear into my own car and am filthy in 2min :P

The engine is identical to whats in the Z basically - nothing has been modified for the crate versions. It's pretty much a replacement motor. We have alot of hurdles to overcome to getting it into the car and running. We're still on hurdle #1 at the moment

I'll have a site up soon showing the progress. We hope to have the LS1 out within a few weeks. The car is getting ALOT of toys from front to back. :D

Oh, and no warranty on this baby.. The still virgin cam will be the first thing to come out of it. It'll be installed in the car along with a set of Kook's custom 1 7/8" headers, custom 3" exhaust, some sort of breather, larger injectors, and one scary ass cam :jawdrop: Also new 06 Z06 big brake package, wheels, and a set of 3.90's.. I'm sure I'm leaving out something :D
