Exhaust improvements

Has anybody out there traded up from an ef/el xr6 to an au1xr6 ? or are you familiar with both these models?
I would love to here from someone who can tell me the improvements (if any! ) in the factory fitted exhaust systems (headers back) on the au1 model over the el model xr6.

Yes, I went from an ELXR6 to an AUXR6(HP). I also went from a manual to an auto so it makes things a bit tough to compare.

however, the AU does seem less asthmatic than the EL did. I actually had both cars for a few weeks but didn't compare things too much as I was out driving all the time!

Same numbers

Given the unchanged numbers its a fair bet there is little difference. I've driven both and in driveability I dont think the exhaust has an impact. My EL exhaust system was on for only a few weeks before I replaced it, I'd do the same with the AU1/2. Dont think I'd even use the word headers in the same sentence as the factory exhaust really......the cat is ok tho.

My opinion only...
