Default m6 aluminum ds in a4

has anyone install a stock aluminum driveshaft from a m6 into a a4.
is it a direct swap?
is there any gains,or downside?
which is stronger?
has anyone weighed them?
depending on the results i might swap one over from my m6 to my a4 listed in sig

the same driveshaft is used in the a4 and m6 cars, no difference in strength, weight, length, or yokes.

It will go in without a problem. The Aluminum one is smoother at higher speeds, weighs around 12 lbs.
