Tuner and lightweight drive shaft are worth about the same performance to a stock car and both will improve your gas milage. I would say either are a good way to go. However if you have any engine mods go for the tuner, the tuner will magnify your current mods. If this is your cars first mod go for the driveshaft, it will give you the same performance level and save your engine a little longer until you start to modify it.

Good job on the JLT/BBK combo and picking out the 373s for your manual car. What brand pulleys did you go with?

Good parts selection. Your setting yourself up for better power numbers than most get. If you ever need advice on mods and brand selection I can tell you whats what so your mods continue to give you the best power numbers possible.

I don't know if your running around with stock suspension, but I would upgrade your springs to some H&R's or something comparable. But if you're set on a tuner vs driveshaft, I would go tuner. My experience with tuners is you get used to the power increase real quick.
