confused AU IRS exhaust different?

G'day all, just received a query that someone might know more about. Is the exhaust system on an IRS AU any different to the live axle model? Any info appreciated.
Cheers, Jack

Re: AU IRS exhaust different?

the live axle has the exhaust over the dif housing & the I.R.S. has it running under


the standard six has a basic single system

the AU XR6 VCT has a single system split into twin untill it passes the diff & then it joins into the main pipe prior to the rear muffler but there is enother section that continues on & has a welsh plug fitted into it at the rear of the car

the XR8 sedans all come with IRS & have factory extractors into twin cats & a full twin system with a balance pipe that runs under the IRS & into a single muffler on the rear that is twin in & twin out

hope that helps

regards
rod

Re: AU IRS exhaust different?

Thanks very much Rod, that's just what I was after. The car is a Ghia but the exhaust will be very similar to the XR6 VCT. Cheers!
