#1 can i use the trans yoke i have now, or do i have to buy one special made for the aluminum driveshaft?

#2 any tips on install, i heard it is a pain in the ass the get the bolts off, enough of a pain to use a torch.

I've read on mustangboards from members that have them that they improve throttle response and give the car more pep...

worth the money in their opinion... and they paid full price... so go for it

I was going to ask about any benefits apart from being shiny, thanks. ;)

weight?

i think it is like an 8 pound wight drop, but that is alot since it rotational mass. i think some people have seen like 2 tenths of there 1/4..plus it will help counter the 18s

and does anyone know where to get either a FRPP or HPM driveshaft afety loop...the cheapest i could find is like $50 after shipping.

I have one and the car did feel lighter. It has nothing to do with throttle response, it has to do with saving rotating mass. That is the heaviest type of weight there is, hence the front runners and super light racing wheels. The installation is a breeze. I bought brand new from summit a couple of year back when they were $130 or so. I just installed it like 4 months ago. You should be able to use the same yolk, but mine came with one. All you have to do is turn the rear wheels so you have acess to all 4 bolts holding the d/s to the differential. Took me like 5 min to install. O0
