Default Just Ordered my Shaft Masters direct bolt in aluminum drive shaft!

Got my taxes back today and ordered up the drive shaft....I Will most likely wait till the weather turns warmer before the install. But something tells me when i see it, i will make arrangements to have it installed right away...lol...Thinking about setting up an appointment with Tillman speed to get it installed, I'm to old to be laying on the ground....lol ...Gonna start saving up for an Edelbrock Supercharger, looking at a late summer install for that mod...

My interpretation of this modification is that any improvement seen is like installing a better rear end gear -- no new horsepower per sae, but the engine might spin up faster (giving you more torque).

Is that right?

You are removing rotational mass before the tires which will improve rear wheel horse power.

To what extent (in your opinion) are you gaining HP? I'm curious about the HP to $ ratio . . .

According to Shaft Masters the reduction in rotational mass equates to 14 hp gained.... so now with the combo of a brenspeed tune ,k and n drop in filter and this d/s i should be creating 344 crank hp....
