Quick question, do unit champions count towards the minimum of 5 models you need in the unit to be able to use Look Out Sir!

From what I recall, no. Don't they recieve a 'Look Out Sir' roll themselves?

Davo is correct - champions don't count as they themselves recieve 'Look Out Sir!' rolls.

just for clarity, the real reason why they don't count is because they count as a character for all purposes of shooting and things that work like shooting.

So let's say you put a character in a unit of cavarly that contains 5 models including a champion, you're character doesn't get the Look out sir roll because there is only 4 rank in file models in the regiment.

Correct. You'd need six including the champion to get LOS!

on a similair train oif thought, can a champoin die from normal shooting if the unit has more then 5 rank and file guys? Like a unit of 6 and a champion get hit with a bunch of hellblaster shots and fail 10 armor saves, then all the rank and file guys die. but will the champion?

Yes, per BRB p.81, if there are enough wounds to kill every rank & file with at least one wound left over, the Champ is killed too.
