Re: Cerberus here we go.

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.

Re: Cerberus here we go.

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.

Re: Cerberus here we go.

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.
