was wondering if anyone knows if the huge dash/instrument panel on the first 1991-1993 diablos can be removed and be replaced with the more streamline 1994+ units? Has anyone ever attempted this? Thanks!
It will cost you about $2000 for the conversion by the time you have trimmed it to be the same as the Vt 2 piece pod... The Dials fit the newer pod but the warning panels and the other bits that clutter up you big pod will have to go... It is repaced by a much smaller panel at the bottom.

Edmo - The problem with an update is the gauges - by in large, you usually have to gave up 1 gauge and reposition the others. Many omit the ALT gauge. This will usually mean you have to sever the wire harness and start "splicing" your wires by hand to make it fit.
I made my own. Because I do serious concours, I swap it out before a show to the original... It takes about 30 minutes, that's all. The new shorter one not only looks better, but gives you better visibility where you can see the front end of the nose of the car.. here's the pix:
