I don't believe it will mate up with the tranny. If you wanna make real power you should swap out the tranny anyway! But might as well get a one piece driveshaft

What would be a good tranny upgrade?

If you're engine swapping or going f/I with a lotta boost you should go the tremec t56 magnum (I believe that's either the GT or gt500 tranny) and the t56 magnum xl is a beefier version. Otherwise I don't see a need to upgrade
