Default 1 Piece Driveshaft

OMG, I ordered my one piece driveshaft from Lethal Performance in December and it just arrived today after two months. Is this normal?

I called Lethal Performance once a week since mid January and they said that DSS (Driveshaft Shop) wasn't picking up the phone or returning calls.
Perhaps they misplaced my super sales price order?
Anyway, Christmas for my car has finally arrived and will the install will be this weekend.

What's the benefit of a one piece drive shaft? Excuse me, I'm a noob to Mustangs.

The aftermarket DS are stronger and weigh less. Now in theory the less rotating mass (weight) you have on the drivetrain the more power you can put down.

Also the aluminum driveshafts can have less vibration too. My 99 has the ford racing aluminum piece and its got less vibration.

Don't really notice significant vibration, but it is pretty noisy. However, the Borla exhaust drowns out the noise off idle.

Thanks, makes sense. I read somewhere they also allow the governor (top speed) to be disabled on a V6. Is that true? Not that I am personally interested in that with a car under warranty, but in the future it may be something I would be interested in.

Disabling the governor requires an electronic input/change but the issue with the V6s is the driveshaft exploding. There was a video of one grenading at 130ish.

AM was out of stock on the DSS shaft from mid December through late January, so I don't think it would have arrived much sooner.

Most tuners (by tuners I mean companies not the actual unit) will not remove the limiter UNLESS you have an upgraded driveshaft on a v6. So you have to put on the driveshaft, and then use a tuner to remove the limiter.

I may be wrong...I'm new to this - but doesn't AM have a low-price guarantee?

...but regardless (not trying to second-guess you) - hope you're enjoying your new goodie!

I bought a 1 piece a/s from brenspeed. I believe it was made from dynotech. The drive shaft was awesome. Took me about 2 hours to change. It was $737 shipped. Rated to 900 horse power.

No worries, hope your question was answered to your satisfaction.

Big rain storm coming to Nor Cal this weekend. I'll be installing the DS and will post comments later.

DSS makes a great product. You will notice the lag is reduced greatly between pedal movement and the back wheels turning. Car feels way more connected after install IMO.
