Fox Exhausts? (For NA)

Post by 50ShadesOfRed »

Hello there πŸ–πŸ»

So. I've had a few parts on order (wheels/tyres/various tidy up bits/exhaust)

One of these items is a Mongoose cat-back exhaust.
Ordered in early Feb, and has been on "back order" since, was due in this week - now apparently they haven't been manufactured as planned, and are still on back order for another 6-8 weeks!

The supplier has stock of a "Fox" exhaust, and has said a lot of the outstanding MR2 customers have swapped to this system instead due to the delay - question is... Is it any good?

There seems to be very little information on this system online/ reviews/ videos etc so I'm a little hesitant to swap from a well renowned system, to this Fox one...

Admittedly, it does look quite nice, and I hear that Fox make systems for the MK3 - never heard of it for the MK2 though πŸ€”

Any exhaust gurus out there that can jump in on this one?

(Edit)
Here's a link to the system in question:

The tips are the same style as the Mongoose

It looks like a Mongoose with larger tips.

Ok cool - the mongoose I had on order had the slash cut tips, so this is a different style to what I was going for :(

There seems to be loads of content on the mongoose systems, but hardly anything on these fox ones so although they seem well made I'm still on the fence - not sure whether to just wait it out or not πŸ€”

your profile does not say where you are in the country, but if you are looking for a specific design, you might consider having it custom made

Ok, so after speaking with the supplier again it sounds like there is no supply of Mongoose slash-cut, and the back-order wait time is "piece of string" - So I've swapped to the Fox!
(After some intensive googling... In German)

Once it's installed I'll post up a review/pics/video so that there is a bit more UK based content for these systems to be referred to for others 😎

Should be installed by Drift Limits in mid-May; the wait is on...
