Default Nineball's drive shaft after turbo!

Here's a pic of Tony's drive shaft after he gets that turbo on his new Mustang.

This is a stock steel that somebody broke. I think he had a supercharger but not sure. I believe the post was on the Corral. Our factory drive shaft is heavy and weak. You will need one of the $700 aluminum shafts to hold that turbo with sticky tires.

Ford Racing Performance Parts may be coming out with an aluminum driveshaft. I talked to a guy this morning and he said if they get enough calls they will. It will be like the Ranger shaft M-4602-R that some are shortening and using with the Cobra flange M-4851-B. Would be nice to get it the correct length.

Give them a call and get them rolling. 586 468 1356

I have the aluminum driveshaft from FRPP. I've hit it with over a dozen 7000rpms dumps and it's held. I went to do an oil change on my F150 and it to has the same alum driveshaft. So I know I have a spare if needed. -Mark
