New to the game.

What's up I am new to the ford family just bought my first mustang 2014 V6 automatic . I wanted to know what kind a drive shaft is in the newest mustangs, is it a one piece or a two piece? Saw a video on youtube were a guy shaft snapped while he was driving. I like to push my car a little from time to time but I want to know my limits and also whats the speed limiter set at and can I do burnouts? If you gonna talk crap about me having a v6 automatic please don't comment I don't want to hear it.

So I don't have to really upgrade my DS if I get a tune?

Wrong. This is a pic from under my car while I installed my shifter bracket.

Oh, it also looks like I may have a pinion seal leaking.

I don;t think you will hear any crap on this 3.7 2010 up part of the forum. 99% of us have a V6 and 1/2 of them are automatics. You have a great combination and I'm sure you will start modifying it soon. When you get fifty posts you can get the discount code from American Muscle.

Welcome to the forum.

Ronnie

Welcome to the forum post up some pics of your ride. Don't worry the 3.7 is pretty stout on it own. Enjoy the ride

Welcome. You can do a tune without the driveshaft but the driveshaft is a good upgrade
