    Yes you use the stock one. DSS analyzed the intermediate shaft and found it to be made of a material which closely matches that properties of chromoly steel. The intermediate shaft is more then capable of supporting 600hp based on there study. This was mentioned in the GB thread as well.
    you mean this ?

    "We chose to use the Factory inner CV's on this kit as after Quantitive analysis we found the inner to be a material close to a 4140 chromoly with a hint of Vanadium. We have used this type of end before with outstanding results after a special Temper and re-heat treat. "

    considering the monster you're building, maybe getting hold of one of their prepped shafts would be good. Can't wait to see this run. ....G.

    • where is the like button???

      also, since you had custom hubs made up, how much did just the hubs cost? I'm wondering about lug pattern changes...

            Only bummer now is I won't get a chance to actually put paint on it until probably The first week of July. CarCraft is sneaking up to fast on me...

                      You bet. I was hoping to get the car with some paint on it, but alas... found some additional prep work that was needed and we ran out of time. I really wanted to at least get the engine bay complete so I could start assembling the powertrain and get it running. However before that can happen I need to finalize the fuel system. I think I am just going to drop the tank and replace everything.

                      New tank
                      New tank straps
                      New lines with AN fittings, -8 supply, -6 return
                      Dual Aeromotive 340 Stealth pumps (second one to kick in when the IMRC would normally turn on)
                      1000cc fuel injectors

                            If you use a slide hammer/axle puller like you should it will pull out just fine. It is significantly easier than trying to pry it out with a crow bar.
