Driveshaft

Im looking at the drive shaft on AM but I have an auto trans so ill need to use my stock yoke. What I want to know is would using the stock yoke defeat the purpose of upgrading the driveshaft. My only reason for upgrading the driveshaft is im going to start building my 3.8 and I need something stronger to handle the power so I don't want to put a new driveshaft on it to just to have my stock yoke break.

Part of the perks of the upgraded drive shaft is the lower weight and therefor less rotational mass. Using the stock yoke doesn't defeat the purpose of the upgrade


1st mustang, first car- bought mid November 2014- 2004 v6 convertible w/ 85k miles, v8 exhaust, fast enough to get in trouble...

I think I would build the 3.8 first and when you're ready to focus on the drivetrain purchase the driveshaft.

Only reason why I say that is think of how many guys purchase a ton of nonessential parts for their build then end up losing interest, run out of funds, etc and end up selling all those parts at a loss.
