Well the difference is also the wiring loom to the gearbox changed.

I have not heard of anyone so far fitting an AU gearbox to an E-Series yet.

The AU also has an adjustable variable pressure regulator. I wouldnt think too much changed internally...

Bit smoother shifting and better internals.

MTBF for an EL box was 200,000km. It was upped to 250,000km for the AU due to complaints from taxi operators, so they must have done something better inside the box.
