Is Stock Driveshaft OK

I have a 2012 mustang GT with little mods like intake off road x pipe and bama x4 tuner. I was wondering is it really worth my money right now to go out and buy a one piece drive shaft or will the stock one hold up for a while?

Stock driveshaft should be good until you start making serious power. Not sure the exact limit, but I am sure others will chime in.

There should be multiple threads, on here/all over the internet about the stock driveshafts limits, if you have not already searched the topic I recommend doing so

ie.here is a lot of knowledge

Limits of stock GT (5.0) driveshaft, tranny, rear axle, and other components? - The Mustang Source - Ford Mustang Forums
Aluminum Driveshaft - How important is it? - The Mustang Source - Ford Mustang Forums
Speed Limiter - The Mustang Source - Ford Mustang Forums
