I'm totally happy with my CXR kit..... It works great for me and I'm happy with the quality.  with that said, Hoke is building stuff that seems just a tad better than everything else I've seen and if it was available at the time I probably would've gone that route. But to be totally honest, I have no regrets with my CX racing application.


What's your driveshaft length with the CX engine mounts, I'm assuming your diff is a is a R200?

I went the cxr route...... If I did it again I would do hoke. With that said, I've been happy with my choice overall. I just think Hokes stuff is really well built and designed well.

Same here. CXR kit. Motor sits lightly high compared to other kits but I have no other major complaints.

I don't remember the length off hand..... I running the long nose R200 LSD.  I just measured once I had it all in where I wanted it then took my shaft to a shop and had it cut down.

I've heard good things about those mounts with the only issue being low mount f body alternator clearance from the engine mount.
