    Collected this one today for my Daddy,
    Renault of course, but supercharged instead of a Turbo. A very rare 1993 Espace 2 V6 from Elia, with an Albrexx Supercharger and Intercooler.
    It came from a german Renault Dealer, sits there since 1993, only 99.000 km. The car needs a paintjob, new brakes and a new power steering, and some cleaning.
    We just thought that we must save it;-)

    It is a kit from "ELIA", just a few existing, this is only the second one I found for sale in a couple of years.
    It needs some work, but I think it's gonna be a cool car for the old man;-)

    Unless the engine has been modified & managment I reckon about 190-200hp @ 4-5psi boost

    Cripes. I bet that gets quite interesting!

    It should be 190hp. I found a single Video about an equal Espace on youtube, where the guy writes 250hp, but I don't know if that's right, even if I think that the Pulley on the supercharger is bigger.
    On an other Espace page is written 135kw or 184kw, so I believe they maybe had two different conversions.
    The net does not know much about this car. My dad was looking for an Espace V6, because he had one 15 years back and wanted one again, and I found this one.
    So we drove to the Garage had a look at the Espace and wanted to take it home;-)

    Got a second Espace (2L GTX) for spares (and it was for free;-) ), so after wrenching some hours, my garage is full of parts.
    Anybody needs an 2L GTX engine or UN1 box;-)
    Probably starting with preparations for the respray of the V6 next month. Im going to update with pics then;-)

    I know a man thats after one, he will ship too if it's the right model. What comes after the "UN1"? Like, a 21T box is a UN1-13, I need that second number to pass it on to him.

    I thought the 2l Espace had a NG box?

    Yes, Red21, you are right, had a closer look at it today it is NG 3079.
    What's the difference? I found out that the bellhousing is different and the clutch is operated in a different way.
     
  19. DaveL485

    DaveL485 Staff Member

    Different ratio's, gear strength, bellhousing, pull type clutch....quite a lot! I'm sure Rich will be along in a sec to give us the proper details :D lol
