    Driveshaft question

    Is the driveshaft in the SVO's the same as any Foxbody? As for length and input spline. Also when doing the V8 trans swap does that require any modification to the driveshaft? Reason I am asking I am thinking of a carbon fiber driveshaft and I may do a trans swap later on and want the driveshaft work with it also.

    Yes, the driveshaft are the same as any Fox body.

    I also believe you will have to modify the input shaft of a V8 tranny to work with the pilot bearing in the crank. Do some searching here, as I know some folks have gone that route. Good luck with your swap and let us know how it works out.
