Less rotational mass generally means the engine has less resistance and will improve acceleration. My questions would be who buys a $700 drive shaft, goes to the trouble of installing it then pulls it out. Good call in having it looked at.

I have an aluminum driveshaft and I did not see any changes. For better or for worse.

Are you asking, benefits of getting a "dynotech" or benefits of getting an aluminium driveshaft.
Benefits of the Dynotech would, in this case, be the price.
Benefits of getting an aluminum DS seem to vary somewhat between people that have gotten them. They definitely have a lot of theoretical benefits with regard to weight savings and speed limits.
There seems to be mixed opinions on the need to check/change pinion angle when changing from a 2 pc to a 1 pc drive shaft. You may want to look into that as well and don't take one persons opinion on the subject. (You could check with Dynotech, for their opinion.)

Aluminum driveshafts are used more for safety since it is a one piece design.
Not for mpg's or hp.

Most people invest in the driveshaft when they tune over the 115 speed limiter which going over 115 the 2 piece stock driveshaft can't handle. Probably the second biggest mistake Ford did to this car other than the 2.73s

Yep, at 130+ mph the stock driveshaft literally goes "BOOM".

What about the vibration dampening and no clunk at lower speeds?
I heard 1 piece DS helps with these two issues also.

It does. But so far for the Auto people, it adds a nice clunk when going to Reverse.

Pretty loud to. I was asked about it in a parking lot. Someone thought my car broke down. LOL

Ohh.. So you are saying that it will help with the issues I listed but will add a clunk in reverse to autos only?

So far that seems to be the finding. I even checked the bolts twice. Everything is fine. So I guess the clunk comes natural with this. lol

Ok Thanks!! I was curious because I recently ordered a DSS AL Driveshaft. I would hate myself if I paid to install a clunk on my car..
P.S. I have a V6 Manual.

The clunk is actually normal when I spoke to AM about this. There's really no fix I guess but it's not like it's such a big thing where it's annoying.

Clunk here too. It's normal I believe. Doesn't bother me because it only happens putting the car in reverse. And even then, it doesn't happen every single time. I find that the harder I press in the brakes, the less chance of a clunk sound.

Also, retuned car, took off 110 limiter and went 130mph (closed abandoned strip in mejico). The car felt as stable as if you were stopped. Extremely pleased with this addition.

When I would try for 110 on the stock drive shaft, it felt wobbly and massive vibrations.

Had my stocker to 110mph and was as smooth as a baby's butt.

Like I've said before the clunk is just from the transmission going into reverse. The drive shaft is sitting still and then it's slammed the opposite way and stops real quick because the brakes are on. It's common sense when two or more metal parts interact like this they will make noise. The stock one does to but it's a lot quieter and under heard because of the material difference.

Which shaft do you have? AE or DSS? I wonder if the CV joint in the DSS shaft reduces that clunk from going into reverse.

I'm getting kinda tired of my wobbly stock driveshaft and am planning a change soon.

I have the AE one and it does the same thing.
