One Piece driveshaft or stage 1 clutch

Trying to get some feedback from anyone who has done either modifications. For anyone who has switched to a one piece all aluminum driveshaft, was it worth it? Any noticeable differences while driving other than possible peace of mind if cruising high speeds? Also with a stage 1, I'm definitely not running off of too many mods other than CAI, catbacks, and shorties, but was curious to find out as well from anyone who's done it how it worked out? Would it be practical for a daily driver? Any experiences would be much appreciated.

I have a one piece aluminium driveshaft for my 3.7 and worth all $680 dollars. I love it. Its from AM and made by The Axle Exchange. It will free up rwhp and rwtq and provide quicker off line acceleration. Great mod especially for us 3.7 owners.

Me too. Plus did a stage 2, new slave throw out bearing and aluminum flywheel. Getting rid of the dual mass flywheel is worth every penny.

I would say that a tune and gears are your next bang-for-the-buck mods. This stuff is nice, but it's not going to give you the same kind of gains.

Gears and tune for sure but the dmf really is a great mod. It makes the car rev up. No more sluggishness when I shift and get on the gas and wait for the clutch to fully disengage. It's a mod well worth doing just as gears are. Honestly I think I would have done the driveshaft and the dmf before a cold air , tune and gears from a mechanical standpoint it makes the car feel so much better and the throttle response is 100x better.

CAI gears and tune made a big difference for me too

Sorry for off subject but was your shorties worth it?

I don't know yet, I'm still in Afghanistan. I'm having someone put them on for me who's watching my car while I'm over here. I'm definitely going with a tuner for my next mod but the driveshaft and clutch are sort of long range goals.

NO bolt on anything will free up the 15+horsepower that the original heavy two piece driveshaft is robbing from you. Best $$$$$$$$$$$ spent. Add on top of that the increase in cruising gas mileage and it's a no brainer.

OP, driveshaft is worth it!
First thing I noticed was the ride quality was a lot better.
And the stupid fast part is worth it as well :p

Driveshaft. Love it. Especially since that EVIL 113 mph Limiter is no longer on my car.

thanks for the input guys! I'm going with the driveshaft for my next mod for sure. Then tuner and then gears. Out of you all who got the one piece driveshaft how different does the car drive vs the stock driveshaft? Any changes in acceleration or sound quality (heard some of the vibration goes down)?
