Re: can anyone compare(man) AU2 xr6 vct to ba xr6 n/a
I cant compare to a BA but can compare au2 Xr6 vct ute(needed it for work) to an El Xr6,and initially was disapointed with the power (lack of bottom end torque),compared to the HP xr6 engine but the VCT pulls higher up the rev range.
Handling/braking wise the AU ute kills the EL xr6, but the AU has 17" wheels,twin spot caliper standard.
I perfer the EL xr6 interior over the AU due to head room and door pillar postition and seat type(still cant get comfortable),and also prefer the EL dash lay out,though gear change is crisper with the AU and shorter.As for looks the EL XRs with a factory body kit is tough,the only thing better in the AU shape I would say the pursuit ute body kit or the T series,other than that the can look pretty plain
I would rate the AU 2/3(not series 1) slightly better than the EL,
Id like to drive a non VCT AU2/3 the see if they have the torque the EL had.
BTW I think Ive sorted out my torque problem ,on mine with a new exhaust,starting to enjoy it alot more.
I hope this confusing story helps you decide,I dont know my self ..HA
Its just me in the Wagon
