1  Extreme Kits / Extreme Murcie / Re: Cerberus here we go. on: July 12, 2019, 11:31:08 PM
Time for a update.
Well today has been a complete success.
Today the Lambo passed its mot with flying colours and no advisories.
I use a Ferrari specialist garage for the mot as there extremely strict and are used to expensive cars.
Looks like Rogue Motorsport have done a fantastic job with the conversion as everything is tip top.
Not to mention I have finally driven her for the first time since the conversion.
So what’s she like?
Where do I start?
So when you come to turn the key from cold.
It’s got a super car starting sound.
When you turn the key you that long whine from the starter motor before it fires up. Real lambo style.
Then it suddenly fires to life.
When starting from Cold the engine will idle at 2000 rpm until it becomes warm.
Now this part is extremely loud. It sounds like a formula 1 car. It’s a extremely loud purr. Absolutely insane.
Once the engine starts to warm up the revs slowly drop down to 900 rpm.
Whilst ticking over it’s very civilised. Just a quiet purr. So quiet you can hold a conversation at the back of the car without having to shout.
If you give it alittle rev it sounds like something very special indeed. A real supercar sound.
So what’s it like to drive?
The clutch is extremely fierce. Being brand new and a racing clutch to cope with the powerful engine. it’s difficult to get a smooth take off.
The engine is so smooth and pulls beautifully.
It revs so freely and sounds like a beautiful orchestra playing sweet melody behind you.
Then you get a chance to open her up and that orchestra turns into the sound of the devil opening up.
By god it’s loud and sounds totally mental.
What car is similar to this sound? The only way to describe the sound is YouTube a modified Nissan GTR. It’s very similar.
When your slowing down using the engine it burbles, pops and bangs away even getting the odd loud pop.
It’s absolutely fantastic.
But where it really scores is it’s free rev sound. It’s not like the fart from a 4 cylinder it’s a pure roar.
You get kids walking past shouting give it a rev mate. When you give it a rev it does not disappoint. It simply sounds insane.
To get this amazing sound rogue have surely done there homework.
It’s pretty much straight piped with no CATS but only a small 4” silencer to take the edge off. It doesn’t do much when it comes to quietening this monster.
I’m glad now that mine is a 1990 chassis because if it was a 1992 onwards it would require a naff catalyst on the exhaust.
So it it fast?
Errr yes putting it mildly.
With around 300 bhp of pure naturally aspirated grunt. It’s definitely a 0-60 car in around 5 -6 seconds.
But don’t forget that the cars very heavy. I would guess just over 1.5 tonnes with all that steel and fibreglass.
But I don’t want to rag it and drive her like a bell end. These days I tend to drive like a old fart and you will only end up getting nicked anyway.
There’s no point to prove. It now sounds like a Lamborghini and it moves like one as well.
Photos below are of the car having its mot and the amazing pipework made by rogue.
There’s lots of small jobs to do now over the summer.
Now I have a obd port I can plug a Bluetooth reader in to operate a app on the stereo screen for more gauges.
A new stereo is in order with a subwoofer.
The engine does look abit plain so maybe a new v12 engine cover is in order.
I will keep you all updated as before.

Just came across this.
I’ve seen it for sale before. Keeps appearing every year.
It’s got that Audi v8 fitted.
Don’t know if it’s a extreme.
Considering it’s got no mot and needs work he’s abit steep on the price.

Hi guys.
Just thought I should tell you that I’m now re opening my post on my Lamborghini kit car.
Since last year she’s been away at Rogue Motorsport having a 3.5 V6 fitted.
She’s now back and you can read all about what’s going on back on my build page.

Hi guys.
It’s been a while since my last post.
As you know my Lamborghini has been away at rogue Motorsport having a 3.5 litre V6 shoehorned into it.
They have had the car since December.
Well today has been a amazing day as I have finally brought her home.
Since today I have only seen in progress half way through so I haven’t heard or driven her.
I arrived at rogue around midday and had arranged for the car transport company to meet me there around lunchtime.
There she was sitting there in all her glory waiting for me to collect her.
It’s been so long I’ve forgotten how beautiful she is in her bright orange.
Well the engine is in there and it’s a lot more full in the back than it used to be with a lot of pipes.
When you look under the back the new exhaust system is a absolute piece of art.
You can see the amount of workman ship to get her to where she is is incredible.
The car has basically been totally rebuilt. Every pipe has been replaced. A new radiator, everything is brand new.
Of course it’s now time to actually start her up.
Ohhhhhhh! Myyyyyyyyy! Godddddddd! Putting it politely.
From the fart from the old 2 litre to the roar of a formula 1 car.
It sounds absolutely insane.
Apparently when you start from cold the engine runs at 2000 rpm till it starts to warm up.
It then slowly drops down to 900 rpm once warm.
Whilst it’s warming up it sounds possessed by something not from this earth.
Then it slows down to a more relaxed tick over.
Just Give it a rev and it’s still possessed.
It sounds like a real Lamborghini. I’m not kidding.
It’s half the engine of the v12 being a V6 but you really can’t tell. I’ve heard real murcielagos and this is pretty much spot on.
I haven’t had the pleasure of driving her yet as it came off the transporter at 4pm today.
I’ve got some work to do before I do take her for a spin.
I’ve got to fit the rear grills,  bat wings, boot lid and engine cover back and give her a really good check over.
I will post more over the weekend to report on what she’s like to drive.

Hi Guys.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated so it’s about time you had a update.
Those who have been following know that late last year the lambo was taken to Rogue motorsport to have a 3.5 litre V6 conversion.
Well to cut a story short it’s still there.
Rogue have really had there work cut out shoehorning this beast of a engine into the lambo.
The car had thrown up every obstacle possible.
It has been a mammoth task getting it all to fit but we are now nearly there.
There has been so many extra parts ordered from America so delivery times have delayed completion.
This conversion has caused so many problems there is no way I could have done it myself.
Only the knowledge and skill of rogue have made this possible.
The project has also cost a lot more than I had imagined costing well over £10k. So it’s goina hurt that final bill.
But if it goes anything like a lotus evora then it’s worth every penny.
The old engine turned out to be totally nackered. With a list of faults as long as your arm. It was past it.
So some sort of engine replacement was on the cards for a while.
When I visited rogue a few weeks ago I took some photos for you all.
The old engine out and in the floor and the new beast all fitted and almost ready to run.
Time frame wise we are heading for a completion time for just after Easter. So hopefully I will be able to have her ready for the summer.

Time for a update.
Today was a eventful day for me and the lambo.
She’s finally gone off to Rogue motorsport to have her Lotus 3.5 V6 transplant. (Toyota 2GRFE)
As before I used the same car transport company to take it from my house in Maidenhead to Rogues.
This car transport company is used to dealing with supercars everyday so mine is treated in the same way.
As the weather is just rubbish at the moment the company cover the car over so it gets there just as clean as when it left.
The lambos partly stripped with the engine cover, bat wings, rear cover and rear grills making life easier for rogues to get access.
So she’s finally there so Rogue can get cracking with the surgery.
They have already been busy assembling my engine. Apparently it’s come all the way from America.   Cool
We all love some American muscle.  Shocked
So I won’t see the lambo now till March.
I’m not to bothered about not having it till then as it’s winter and would be locked away till April anyways.
Last photo is one engine they have completed so mine will be similar.  Shocked
I’ve asked Rogue to send me photos of her progress so I will update here as I get the info.

You guys need to go back to page 32 and scroll down.
I up rated the brakes March last year to Lamborghini spec.
It’s got 6 pot front and 4 pot rear calipers with monster sized discs.
They were supplied by Hi Spec motorsport and cost nearly 4K.
Fake brakes are just so crap. My baby’s got the real deal.
I’m glad I did because it’s ready for some proper power.

Rogue estimate that it’s going to take around 8 weeks to complete the conversion.
It’s the best time to do it as the car would just be locked away in storage until the spring.

Well it’s finally going to happen.  Shocked

After having thrashed the arse of my Lamborghini on the Dyno I know that this reading is pretty much as good as it will ever get with this old engine.
Everything was maxed out with the waste gate closed permently. Maximum boost cooling etc etc.
222 bhp is the limit as even the clutch started to slip on the 3rd run.
So this finally made my mind up.


This poor 2 litre has so much work to do to shift this big tank about so I have finally done it.

Yep she’s having a 2GRFE 3.5 litre V6 conversion.   Shocked

Rogue motorsport in Coventry are going to carry out the conversion.

It’s by no way cheap costing £11k to get this done. But the deposit has now been paid as she’s off for surgery in 2 weeks time  Shocked

According to rogue a nice figure around the 300 bhp is what they are aiming for with a shit load of torque to go with it.
This will finally make my lambo a proper quick car. With the V6 roar to Boot.
I drove the lotus evora with this engine earlier on in the summer and it was a rocket.

There’s a terrible stigma when you tell people it’s a 2 litre. You get OH!  Angry but 3.5 litre sounds more like it.
I will keep you up to date on her progress.

Hi guys.
Today was a very eventful day for me.
As some of you are probably aware. I own the bright orange Extreme Lamborghini Murcielago which is running a MK2 Rev 1 1990 G reg turbo chassis and engine.
When I built the car I always aimed towards the bling and show of the car.
Which is why everything is polished chrome and polished aluminium.
As time has progressed I’ve been changing a few things and turning up the boost pressure.
So as from today everything is maxed out.
It’s a standard 2 litre engine with a standard turbo. But it does have a bigger intercooler and a oil cooler added but that’s it.
The turbo is maxed out and the wastegate is welded shut so there is no actuator or dump valve fitted.
I’ve been trying to take her to my local Dyno to actually see what’s going on performance wise. But every time the day came it was always raining.
Finally today it wasn’t raining and she went to the Dyno and boy it was a experience for me.
I’ve never actually seen what goes on under the bonnet and around the back of the car whilst the cars being put through it’s paces.
Firstly boy it’s loud and so it should be. It’s straight piped with not a silencer in sight.  :th:
Once things got going and it started to give everything it’s got the whole exhaust started to glow red and then bright red.
God that’s hot!
When the tester took his foot off it was like a afterburner coming out of the exhaust.  :yahoo:
The tester did 3 attempts giving it everything.
By the last test the poor clutch just couldn’t cope and started to slip.
It was a brand new clutch when I fitted the engine but it is a standard one.
Once all the testing was done it was time to let things cool down and look at the results.
So the results are 222.08 bhp and 193.63 ft lbs at 7k rpm from the wheels.
Not sure what this works out from the flywheel.
Not bad for a standard engine.
It’s not all good news tho. She’s running altitle to lean and there’s a slight misfire at the top end. Not to mention the slipping clutch because of the heat.
One things for sure. There’s no point in me fitting the Camry V6 in there. It’s not going to be any more powerful. Infact it’s going to be slower.
I’m not sure what I could do to improve on this. I suppose this is the limit of this engine.
I don’t know if I should opt for the 2gfe 3.5 V6 or simply stick with having a modified turbo lump fitted with some serious horse power.
Considering being a lambo power is the way forward
11  Extreme Kits / Extreme 355 / Re: MR2 Ferrari 355 kitcar number 2 here we go on: October 20, 2018, 07:08:43 PM
Abit gutted today. Ive now sold me Ferrari. It was driven away this afternoon.
To be honest I didn’t plan to keep it very long. I brought it off somebody who isnt very well with the dreaded C and just wanted rid so I took it off his hands. It needed abit of work to get it up to my standard.
It needed a good service, new shocks, alternator and a wheel bearing. it also needed a dam good clean inside and out as you all saw.
Lovely looking car tho. Inside and out.  Cry
It was only on flee bay for a couple of days before somebody wanted it for my asking price.
So off she went. Bye bye ferrari.
Photo of the new owner driving her away. Booooooowhoooooo.  Cry. LOL.

Hi Guys.
One of my mates has got a normal MR2 Turbo sw20 and he quite fancies turning it into a f430.
Where today do you buy a complete body kit for this project?
Amazing what we discuss in the pub.
