As NRL said, the Mustang driveshaft will not work. It's too short.

You can always contact Dennis Reinhart @ Reinhart Automotive about getting an aluminum driveshaft.

Check with www.crownvic.net on the interceptor driveshafts... they're all aluminum. I would tell you the length of 'em if I knew it off the top of my head. Otherwise I could probably crawl under my car and make the measurement.

I don't remember where, but I believe 'the man' said that they had a few police intercepters snap a driveshaft (critical speed).....might be safer and more cost effective to use a MMC shaft....

However, it is worth looking into, as I cannot find where I read the above statement....but I KNOW I've read it somewhere.
