Summit Aluminum drive shaft

Hi Guys
I have a 67 Camaro with a 396 and currently a turbo 350. I have purchased a turbo 400 to install and was wondering if anyone here has experience with the aluminum driveshafts sold by Summit Auto parts for this application..

I personally won't buy a summit brand part ever again. If you're looking to get one online, you're better off getting one from Denny's Driveshaft or a place like it. I got mine locally made but I didn't get aluminum either. I had an aluminum once but I forgot where I bought it from. It may have even been Denny's.

Personally I would find a local driveshaft shop and have them make you one. It will be made exactly the way you need it and better quality.
