    Thank you.

    No pics yet, but I removed the factory Y-pipe and the mid-pipe on my catback tonight -- awaiting shipment of my new Kooks setup from KY Speed. I'm upgrading to non-emissions headers and a catted Y. This will keep me at least semi-legal. With all this removed, I installed my new UMI tunnel brace and torque arm. Everything is just being test fit for now until the remaining pieces show up. I need the torque arm in place to pivot the axle down so I can install the springs.

    with 4:10s hell be running about 4k RPMs down the interstate. They're intended for drag racing, where top speed isnt a factor, acceleration is.
    3:42s are standard with the M6 and he'd be no where near 4000rpms on the highway. Maybe 2,200-2,300. I didn't realize he and the original poster are both A4s or I would have said 3:73s instead.

    To my knowledge, the length difference is about 1/2" when said and done, and the stock length DS can still be used.

    Just my opinion, but if you're upgrading a rear end to a Moser or Strange 12 bolt or 9", you probably would want to upgrade the factory DS as well at some point. It will now be the weak link. The difference in the length can be made up in the trans yoke or in the yoke adapters when going to the 1350 series.

    When I measured, it appeared that the Moser 12 bolt was about 1" longer than the 10 bolt (measured from axle centerline to u-joint centerline). I am going to try to get the car back on its wheels this weekend so I can see where the yoke will be with the driveshaft in position.

    You may be right as it was difficult to get an accurate measurement. I think you, and others, recommended the PST unit. May just have to order one up and be done with it.

    Engine upgrades will be next winter. It is a Trans Am. I like the interior color.

    Spohn seems to be high quality. probably going to order my 12-bolt from them.

    Haven't read much on the Spohn DS. Spohn in general makes pretty good products though from what I understand.

    Spohn's are $360 + shipping from their site. No rating other than "very high HP abuse". Also didn't see a warranty on their site.

    The PST is lighter (aluminum) and rated for 1000HP (tested at 1200HP) and runs $420 shipped. They have a lifetime warranty.

    I'm sure either one is more than enough for the OP's future plans.

    Spohn sells it but it's manufactured by Strange. The PST is bigger in circumferance and this can be a pita. Also aluminum is for beer cans IMO.

    Your logic fails you (like most of your posts) as this thread is about driveshafts, not engines.

    I do realize a PST is thicker gauge than a stock LS1 ds ^^ but I'll take my A1 steel unit thanx.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with em I just don't see any advantage in spending more money on em. I can't stand that guy that sells em on Tech either, I think that's his shops car.

    That's Bob's car. What guy are you referring to? Cant be Bob, he is a super nice guy. Always takes time out to answer questions, help you out etc.

    By the way you talk about aluminum DS's, its easy to mistake you as badmouthing them, or degrading them. The fact is, they are lighter, and will take less power to turn. Breaking a PST is unheard of. The 3.5" to 3.0" is hardly anything. I run a 4" pipe right next to this DS. With the suspension loaded, there is plenty of room. Talking .25" extra on each side, not very much.
