    Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here checking out an extremely beneficial modification for you S197 V6 owners. We're going to be taking a closer look at this aluminum one piece driveshaft available for 2011 to 2014 V6 Mustangs. A one piece driveshaft is a huge upgrade over the factory two piece driveshaft for a few reasons. An aluminum one piece driveshaft will provide an increase in strength, shed some extra pounds from your Stang, and improve driveability. We could not resist these benefits here at AM, so we even installed some one piece driveshafts on project Coyote and on the original MMD car. Let's talk about the weight savings here. I do have a scale with me here today, so let's see how much this driveshaft weighs. It looks like it's weighing in at about 20 pounds which is almost 29 pounds lighter than the factory two piece design. That's really pretty impressive. Let me remind you that these are pounds that will be shaved directly off of your Mustang's rotational mass. When you take that much weight off of your drivetrain you're going to immediately notice a few things - faster revs and throttle response and even some faster quarter mile times. You will also notice that the one piece driveshaft will eliminate the vibrations that are commonly found with a factory two piece driveshaft. Another benefit here is the increased strength that I mentioned earlier. You're eliminating an inherently weak spot in the factory driveshaft due to the two piece design, and you're also going to be using stronger materials all around. Keep in mind the driveshaft is made from a certified 6061 aluminum. Getting this one piece driveshaft installed on your Mustang is actually pretty straightforward even if you've never done one before. A lift of course would make things a lot easier for you, but you can still do it the old fashioned way. Just leave yourself about two hours from start to finish to get the job done. Make sure you have a torque wrench handy just to keep everything in line with specs. If you guys have any questions about the one piece driveshaft or the install, you can always give us a call or shoot us an email and we'd be more than happy to help you out. Even though upgrading the driveshaft can be a little pricey, the benefits far outweigh the cost here. The numerous improvements over the factory two piece driveshaft are worth every penny. Be sure to check out this aluminum one piece driveshaft for your '11 to '14 V6 Mustang available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Faster Quarters. Shed up to 29 pounds of rotating mass and shave up to 0.2 seconds off your quarter mile time with this SR Performance Lightweight Aluminum Driveshaft.

    Superior Quality. Unlike other designs, which use an adapter - causing vibration and even failure - this SR Performance Driveshaft features 1330 series U-joints and is a solid, 1-piece design made with 4" Alcoa certified 6061 aluminum tubing.

    Precision Crafted. When selecting a driveshaft for your Mustang, you want one that has been made to the highest standards for peace of mind. This SR aluminum driveshaft has been balanced using Schenck military grade equipment to guarantee vibration-free performance.

    Made in the USA. Unlike other aftermarket driveshafts, every part of this SR Performance Lightweight Aluminum Driveshaft is made in the USA, ensuring the highest level of performance.

    Application. This SR Performance Lightweight Aluminum Driveshaft has been designed for 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs with either a manual or automatic transmission. Will not fit GT or GT500.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        What speed is this shaft rated for? I have heard that the stock shaft on the v6 fails at around 130. The reason I would buy this is to increase my top speed & acceleration. So what top speed do you think I could achieve without failure.

        • Stock fails at 122 why cars limited to 118. I have this drive shaft an its smoother an have had my car up to 160mph many times without worry. But you will need better tires. Its a great buy. I run 18 Weds Sport TC005 255/45 General G-max tires. Amazing dry/wet traction.

        Maximum rated HP and maximum RPM? I come from Germany and we have no speed limit on several highways. Therefore I would like to know the maximum HP which can be applied to that Al driveshaft and the maximum RPM for that driveshaft. Can the driveshaft itself handle 5500 RPM (driveshaft rotating speed)? It's something around 160 mph.

        • Oliver, when I contacted the suppplier regarding the same question, they said, "The shaft can handle up to a 1000HP" With regard to the RPM, they said they can guarantee up to redline operation of engine (6800-6850RPM) at top gear. For the rotational speed of the shaft, I am guessing it should be safe until 8500RPM. You have detailed articles in the internet, about the RPM limits of the shaft by itself, classified as per material, Dia, thickness and pinion angle. I would suggest you research that...

        How does this item compare to the Ford one-piece drive shaft (M-4602-MGTM)? I gathered from the video they're made of the same material (6061 aluminum), and I'd assume the same wall thickness (0.125"). How doe the universal joints and flange yokes compare?. Who is the manufacturer for the universal joints (Ford uses 1350 SERIES Dana Spicer 5-1350X, this only specifies "1330 series"). What is the flange yoke made of (again, Ford uses 1350 series)?

        • The SR Performance Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft will use 1330 series U joints which they source from several manufacturers. The 1350 U joints will be stronger than a 1330, however a 1330 is still stronger than the OEM U joints. The flange yoke will be made of 6061-T6 aluminum to accept 1330 U joints.

        Clearance Issues? My 2011 v6 has a 2.5" catback exhaust and I was also planning going with the eibach pro system plus to lower the car (1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear). Seeing that the stock driveshaft is 3.5" and this one is 4", will there be any clearance issues?

        • I have the Eibach Pro springs and a 2.5-inch cat-back, and this drive shaft clears everything just fine. Of course, I'm not off-roading either.

        Helpful (5) Show 2 more answers

        Would there be sufficient clearance between the 4" diameter driveshaft and the bracket, if used with a Blowfish Racing shifter support bracket on a 2011 3.7L, or would it be wiser to go with a 3.5" diameter driveshaft?

        • The Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket will have plenty of clearance with the SR Performance Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft.

        Hey, i red about correcting the pinion angle if you change to an one piece driveshaft. So my question is, do i need to correct the pinion angle or does this driveshaft need no correction? Am i fine with just replacing the stock one with this one? Thanks! 1 answer
        Wondering if any other drivers who have this driveshaft installed notice a whining noise when they accelerate, such noise does not happen when letting off the gas or slowing down? An additional drivetrain mod that I have on my ride are the Ford performance 3.73 rear gears. I did not notice such noise until the driveshaft was installed. I do not have a major issue with the noise but am concerned with either a driveshaft manufacturing issue or installation issue performed by local shop. 1 answer

            BETTER THAN NEW

            After 8 years the original driveshaft was worn out. Been reading about failures for the stock unit, time to change! The SR driveshaft is well built, nice welds and a perfect fit for my 2011 coupe. Keep in mind when installing, you may have to index on the tranny side to get the balance just right. Go for a test drive, if you have any vibration, disconnect from the tranny and rotate to the next set of holes and test drive again. Noticable improvement over the old one, when coasting in gear at highway speeds, no load applied, car would undulate, rumble from rear, not any more!

            Great on stock ride hight

            I bought this at the same time as my Eibach Pro Street coilovers, I tackled this first and drove it for a while before doing the coilovers, it was very impressed, almost completely eliminated the trans vibrations my 14 suffers from, there was still a hint when costing in gear but it was a lot better, acceleration seemed a littler quicker, impressed with build quality over all. installation was tricky with just jacks, recommend loosening the exhaust, definitely not impossible though. The problem comes in with the coilover install, now with a even a 1.5 inch drop it rubs the plastic covering under the fuel tank, not enough to really damage anything but it definitely rubbed some plastic away, I currently have the stock driveshaft back on until I can get the 3.5 inch drive shaft ordered. the 4 inch is great, just as long as you don't plan on lowering it.

            Good Purchase

            Definitely worth purchasing even though expensive, the response and lack of vibration make up for the money spent. I run 355 gears and have a tune, you certainly notice less bog with standard shift as the effort for take off in any gear is much easier, slowing down to an intersection in forth would typically require you to down shift, I now find no need to as there is less weight to turn and better response. The only thing I noticed is a whistle, it’s not bad but noticeable, and I forgot to mention at 130 mph the car is smooth, no vibration as with the old drive shaft that doing above 100 mph you wondered if car was going to shake apart.

            4” Driveshaft Upgrade

            Super easy to install, but not much lighter then stock. There isn’t a noticeable gain other than a little less vibration in the shifter at speed. The cost is really high for this and you could have a driveshaft shop build you a custom one for cheaper. I only added this as my car is being procharged shortly and I needed it to help handle more power.

            No more clunking

            I installed it on a 2012 V6 auto and it fit well, but I did have to wrestle with the exhaust some to fit it in. Raising the rear helps the drive shaft clear the pipes but if you are doing it on jack stands be careful. The car shifts more firmly and the vibration and interior noise are noticeably less. It makes all the difference.

            I debated this a long time because of the price but let me tell you it is worth every penny!!! I kept losing races because I couldn't pass 120. With this driveshaft installed haha yeah right I love seeing people in my rear view. If you are like me and you get loose in your pony get this driveshaft because my V6 still makes power above 120.

            Necessary mod

            Easy install ,but you should use an air gun and a 12 point 12mm socket . I have a lot of tools but I didn't have one of those. Luckily Lowes had them in stock. Picked up a 1/2 inch drive deep socket for $5. No instructions came with mine. good thing I checked the video on AM 's site or I would have installed it backwards. The slip joint with the rubber boot goes to the rear end. 90 of the vibration is gone.

            Just knowing that I don't have to worry about the original shaft shafting me gives me peace of mind. The performance gain and vibration elimination are not noticeable enough to justify the price. Also heavily suggest using a lift for the change over.

            Silky Smooth...

            Just had the one piece driveshaft installed and wow, a smooth car with a couple of clunks now and then has gone absolutely silent. Installed in a 2014 Performance Package with 19" rims and 255/40R19s on them. I purposely did not put the programmer back on the car to say if I could feel a difference. The answer is yes, it rolls forward with less throttle (reduced reciprocating mass reduces drive-line loss from motor). Plus, you have the added security of when you take the MPH limiter off you don't pole vault your car...now I feel safe going to the Dyno. Very happy for the half day I have been beating on it.
