    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.

    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.

    mrkrabz

    • 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

    • 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...

    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?

    fuelforfire87

    • 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.

    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)?

    K123

    • 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.

    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.

    RussHacker

    • Sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your new driveshaft! I would definitely recommend bringing it to the attention of the shop who performed the installation, if you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out to our customer service department at 1-877-887-1105, we are available 7 days a week between 8:30AM and 11:00PM EST!

    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?

    ColinH

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

      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.

      I changed out my gears for 3.55 and wanted a safer driveshaft that would explode when I took off my speed limiter. It fits as expected and I no longer have that horrible vibration at 2500rmps. Very happy with it!

      Great So Far

      It looks a lot better than the stock driveshaft and is a bit lighter. Not only that it provides worry free support. I haven't taken my car over 90mph yet with this driveshaft due to strong police presence in the Columbus, OH area but know it'll support me no matter what speed I go. I do notice the car feels lighter, could be a mind thing but it does, and it definitely gives me better gas mileage. I'll update my review later when I go over the 130mph I've already gone on the stock driveshaft. My stock V6 driveshaft actually looked okay. It was just rusty due to the salt OH puts on the road for snowed on roads.. hate OH weather and what the salt does to my car. My exhaust is all rusty too.. sucks.

      Noticeable difference

      It made a noticeable difference on acceleration and no more vibration over 100. The shop said it was within tolerances but it was out of balance enough that I was getting vibration. Didn’t want to spend the money on a driveshaft but had to replace the junk stock driveshaft.

      Must have.

      I have never thought about changing my drive shaft. There isn't much of a difference while driving except the fact there is less to none vibration compared to the stock. Holding both the stock and this driveshaft there is a difference in weight. I do feel like I can shift a little faster than the stock.

      One Piece of Mind

      Having disabled the speed limiter, I now have peace of mind that my driveshaft won't self-destruct when I'm in a hurry. Also noticed that the car gets off the line a bit quicker. Had my favorite mechanic install for me. Took less than 30 minutes and cost only $48 for labor. Definitely a must have upgrade.

      Stopped the vibration

      Driveshaft is light and seems well constructed. I spent just over an hour installing the new driveshaft. It is easy with a lift. The stock driveshaft vibrated at 70mph unless I let off of the gas. This started after I installed 4.10 gears a year ago. Now there is no vibration even up to 90 now. It is nice to cruise at 70 with no vibration.

      No more Clunking!!!!!

      First off, I would like to say this is a very good product. Its very well made, fit is also good. I have been putting up with clunking and vibration, for to long, this drive shaft sorted those issues. I would highly recommend for any mustang owner, experiencing these problems, first check for excess play transmission, rear end just to eliminate from equation. Replacing this Drive-shaft was a big improvement for me, I should have done it sooner!!!!!

      Great!

      No issues, I do not notice any performance gain as it was installed with a Bama tune so I can't determine what part of the improvement comes for which, but the one thing I do notice is less vibration, the stock unit marries up everything going through the engine, transmission and rear end to floor pan, so all that rurrrr is just gone. Install was done professionally so I can't comment on difficulties but it only cost me $65 and I have no complaints... nice item, good price and quick delivery

      Why couldn't Ford put this in?

      This has been a real game changer for me. I finally decided to buy it once I lost a race with a BMW M3 b/c of top speed being an issue. I was too concerned with the factory 2Piece driveshaft and my car was tuned where I could hit over 120 (Deleted governors), but not without blowing up eventually. 2 hours taking out only 8 bolts and fidgeting around, my car is now driving at 130-140 (haven't tried going above yet w/o better tires) and I am ready to get back on the roads and racing the few who only won from top speed. There was a major notice in throttle response, to taking off. Please see AM's PDF instructions. VERY HELPFUL!
