Default Cummins Swaped Lambo

Hi
We are Italian Design and Racing based out of Mesa, Arizona and mainly do automotive racing but we were able to acquire a special project for a diesel conversion that will ultimately be our new shop truck. We specialize in custom fabrication but something over 3000 pounds is new to us and especially the diesel side of things.

About 2 years ago we bought a 1989 Lamborghini LM002 that had the original engine pulled out to put a Mercedes 5 cylinder in. When we got it we knew that wasn't the direction that we wanted to go so we made our measurements and landed on a common rail cummins. We are looking to take it to Sema either 2018 or 2019 depending on how funds and parts work out for this thing, but either way we are continuing forward on it. As it sits we have the engine mounted and a trans is on the way, so hopefully everything runs smoothly from here (which never happens!).

Here's a few pictures of how the build has been going so far.

The alternative engine came in over this last weekend. We bought a period 9 Liter V12 engine that was out of Lamborghini's Marine division. The project still makes the most since with the cummins but we have a special tandem project that this beast of an engine is going into and will forever be paired with our LM.
