If I am not mistaken you can use a ford aerostar driveshaft

I read an aerostar driveshaft will work (aluminium too I believe ) But that was for a 5.0L with a T-5. May not work in your case, dont know for sure

math > pasta

i'm medicalmikes friend, i'll be helping him with the tremec swap over the summer, how much horsepower will the aerostar driveshaft support? because we dont wanna break it after we put in the 5.0 and a blower

it should work cause the t-5, tremec tko, and the 3550 are the same length, on my buddy's stang we used the same driveshaft. If you are shady about the van's driveshaft, get one cut to those specs cause ordering one to be made fresh will cost you a pretty penny

the only problem with shortening the stock driveshaft to the appropriate length, is finding a driveshaft in the area, can u believe this? new york city and we cant find a driveshaft shop? what the heck
